This high grown Ceylon tea is known for its golden colour, full taste and delicate fragrance. An excellent blending tea as its character sits somewhere between the body of Assam and the floweriness of Darljeeling.
Suitable to be drunk all day with fresh Lemon or milk. As it does not go cloudy when cold it is suitable to be used as a iced tea in the summer months.
Top Tip: Ceylon can be added to English breakfast teas. Most English breakfast teas are made predominantly with Assam and Kenyan CTC fannings, black teas that carry a very rich and strong flavor. The addition of Ceylon adds extra notes of flowery aroma.
Unlike our coffees, our teas are all sold pre-packed. We source them ourselves, cut and blend them if necessary on the premises before packing them is small runs.
Teas mixed on the premises include Organic Breakfast Tea and herbal blends like Sleepeasy.
Before being exported teas are usually processed at origin. Black teas are fermented while drying and Green Teas are dried faster and not allowed to ferment.
Of the fermented black teas the strongest are teas that go through the (self-explanatory) crush tear and curl process known as CTC. But even just having small sized pieces (ie fannings) can make tea stronger as the surface area is increased.
