In Sri Lanka, the lush tea country is divided by a chain of mountains which form the climatic divide of the island into a Western and Eastern region.

The highest elevation is the Nuwara Eliya, from where this tea originates. Ceylon Black Tips is a Orange Pekoe (OP) Grade. 

This estate is renowned for the production of quality organic black teas. This is a hand-plucked tea, processed in small quantities to maintain predominantly full, unbroken leaves.

Brewing Instructions:

Water Temp: 190°F (88°C)

Quality of Water: Best with Spring water

Quantity of Leaf: 1 tsp per  8oz water

Steep Time: 4-5 minutes

Infusions: 1

Ceylon teas are renowned for their full flavor and rich, fruity aroma. To accentuate these qualities, we recommend using higher temperature water, close to or just before boiling (190 – 200 F), with a proportion of one teaspoon of leaf per 8oz of water.

Some recommend water at a full, rolling boil, but in our opinion, boiling reduces the oxygen content in good water and gives the tea a flatter taste as opposed to a livelier one from slightly cooler water.

Steeping time can vary depending on whether you wish to drink with milk or without.

To drink without milk, 3 ½ to 4 ½ minutes is plenty of time to bring out a well balanced sweetness and astringency.

With milk, a slightly longer time is required, 5 to 6 minutes, to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk.
