A high grown Orange Pekoe (OP, means full leaf tea, for more info please see here) from Nuwara Eliya (up to 1900m high) in the centre of Sri Lanka.
High elevation and monsoon clouds are responsible for the moderate temperate and cool climate. It allows the tea bushes to grow slower and accumulate more flavour.
Brisk, highly aromatic with a hint of citrus which is characteristic for an excellent Ceylon tea. Ideal for the morning or as an afternoon tea.
Can take a drop of milk but the flavour will not benefit from it.
50g (default, makes 25 cups) in a sealed bag. Also available in 100g and 250g or our 100g wooden tea chest, please select under 'options'.
