Ceylon BOP Tea

Finely cut leaves give this tea added strength, this makes a lovely morning tea, rich and properly "tea tasting".

Taste Notes : Rich Tea
Origin : Sri Lanka

Ingredients : Sri Lankan black tea

Brewing : Use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste, depending on your preference for strength. Enjoy with or without milk.

Details : There are five different growing districts in Sri Lanka and each will have it’s own character. This Ceylon is from the low growing district of Ruhunu, an area known to produce full-bodied teas with lots of flavour.
Leaves are graded according to size and the B.O.P. Grade - Broken Orange Pekoe - is a small, flat broken leaf with medium body. These B.O.P grades produce a darker cup and infuse faster than whole leaf teas ensuring a pungent and robust bodied cup of tea.

robust black tea packs a punch

it's a winner in every tastebud department


This tea is my "go to" tea in the morning. It can be strong if you like your tea that way or mild as I have it. Either way it is a great tea and full of flavour.


Delicious tea which reminds me of time spent in Sri Lanka.

Lovely cup of tea

Have ordered a couple of times from tugboat and always enjoy the tea.

Loose leaf as opposed to tea bags

For the past 15 years I have been buying Liptons Royal Ceylon tea from super markets in France but sadly we cannot find it any more. The leaves of the Royal Ceylon are proper leaves as they are with the Assam BOP that i buy from Tugboat, but this loose leaf tea resembles something different, it does not look like tea leaves. My favourite cuppa is a blend of Ceylon and Assam (the Royal blend as preferred by King Edward 7th and sold by Fortnum and Masons) and i still have some Royal Ceylon to finish so i have yet to try this version of Ceylon BOP in my blend, however, i would be interested to know if Tugboat are able to supply what i have described as real tea leaves?
