This Ceylon black tea from Sri Lanka is a true Orange Pekoe from the famed, Lover’s Leap Estate. This single estate is located in the foothills directly below the Lovers Leap waterfall in Nuwara Eilya district. Lovers’ Leap teas are reputed for their delicate and elegant characteristics, and “orange pekoe’, refers not to a flavour, but to the appearance of the leaf, being that of a whole leaf pluck, and not broken.
The terrior in this region is rich not only with the farming of tea; the estate is also home to an abundance of eucalyptus, cypress trees and wild mint bushes, lending the air a pleasant mentholated fragrance that influences the resulting tea cultivated here. The tea absorbs the fragrances and when infused it bears a remarkable golden, light green infusion. The flavours are bright, crisp and clean, and the mentholated undertones will leave your taste buds tingling!
