Ceylon Orange Pekoe, New Vithanakande Estate

Ceylon Orange Pekoe, New Vithanakande Estate

from 28.75

Hailing from Sri Lanka, Ceylon tea yields a classic British-style cup and is often used in breakfast tea blends. This unblended single lot, grown in the low-elevation Ratnapura district, is a superior grade (FBOPFEXSP) from New Vithanakande Estate. For this type, only the top quality tea leaves are hand-picked and carefully processed.

Note the sheen on the deep-brown, delicately twisted leaves, interspersed with abundant silver and golden buds. These buds contribute exquisite flavor to a brisk and honeyed infusion, with hints of baked goods, citron, and sundried tomato, and a pleasant, lingering astringency. Although full-bodied enough to blend well with milk or a sweetener, it’s a delightful black tea to enjoy on its own at any time of the day.
