To learn more...
It is a blend of 3 black teas from gardens or districts located at more than 1200 m altitude.
Each one brings its own characteristics to make a great original vintage and rich in flavors.
The Nuwara Eliya district provides a tea with a flowery taste. The tea from Uva has a much rounder taste in the mouth and gives a beautiful infusion with copper colors. Finally the Dimbula garden, which culminates at 1400 m of altitude is known for its full-bodied tea of bronze color.
The letters that follow the name of a tea are useful to inform the consumer about the care taken at the time of picking and also about the size of the tea leaf.
OP (Orange Pekoe): Pekoe is the final bud, so these are young leaves that provide a very delicate taste. Orange does not mean a taste or a color, but refers to the royal family of the Netherlands, the Orange Nassau. One of its members particularly appreciated the delicacy of these teas.
Advice to prepare
Indeed, this Ceylon can be consumed at any time of the day.
In the morning it can be drunk plain or with a cloud of milk.
After lunch, its strong taste replaces advantageously a black coffee.
In the afternoon, it will accompany a greedy snack.
To prepare the tea, it is important to use water simmering at 90° maximum.
If the infusion time is always at the discretion of the drinker, we recommend 3 minutes to give the blend time to develop all its flavors and bring a colorful taste to the palate.
If you like it very strong, you can go up to 5 minutes.
As for the quantity, 2 grams per cup of tea are enough.
