Our Sweetmeats

Tea & Spice Hub has an array of Sri Lankan sweetmeats available for you to choose from. We always use the best ingredients in their preparation. Early Sri Lankans grew what they ate, and reared the animals for other ingredients. Oil cakes were prepared with natural rice flour which came from our own fields, sweetness was added with treacle or jaggery from the trees in the backyard. Oil used to fry the sweetmeats also came from the coconut trees grown by the same farmer, or a nearby oil extraction plant. For any Sri Lankan sweetmeat which milk as an ingredient, the household cattle were the source. The items were prepared by our mothers who has years of experience in adding just the right amount of honey and flour.

We adhere to these same guidelines, tried and tested for centuries. All health and safety procedures are strictly adhered to and we guarantee you a delicious experience with the traditional Sri Lankan sweetmeats.
