Product Description

Ceylon is renowned as the home of the finest teas in the world and for its ability to produce teas of extraordinary variety - full bodied low elevation teas grown at sea level right through to the light and delicate high elevation teas from the Nuwara Eliya region. Galle is a historic seaport and this Orange Pekoe 1 (OP1) is grown in the northern part of the Galle District. The leaf is clean, wiry and black, characteristic of a typical low elevation tea. The infused leaf reveals a coppery hue, yielding a bright, and pleasingly light liquor. Deep golden orange in the cup, this tea has a malt, slightly raw aroma and a peaty finish.
