Black 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 : These teas are grown in five different growing districts in Sri lanka. The high grown district districts are Dimbula, Nuwara Eliya, and Uva. Teas grown in these areas of 4000ft above sea level tend to be light and flavoursome. There are many different leaf grades in the tea world and they are graded according to leaf size. The O.P. Grade is an Orange Pekoe grade, a high quality thin, wiry leaf that is quite tightly rolled. These larger leaf grades tend to have more complex flavour profiles than their smaller graded cousins and typically can be enjoyed without milk.

Wonderful Tea

This is a lovely tea black tea with orange flavour. It has a light flavour of orange that is very tasty and not to overpowering. Would definitely buy again!

A great refresher

What a lovely bright clean refreshing tea. Its a joy to drink any time of day.

David Snook

Excellent earthy, rich tea with a light and floral finish from the orange blossoms. I think this tea very warm and comforting, in the same way a good quality green tea can make you feel on a cold winter day. I would highly recommend trying this one.

Best tea

Light and vibrant start to my day. Bought online from Tugboat for 1st time (usually visit shop) arrived in 2 days with a cheerful handwritten message. Personal touch a bonus. If you want quality teas or coffee this shop stocks them.
