Ceylon Orange Pekoe Tea

The quintessential Ceylon leaf tea. This well-balanced, bright tea is a classic thirst-quenching tea. Large, bright, golden leaves give a full-bodied, refreshing tea to be enjoyed at any time of the day. Works well black or with a splash of milk.

TASTE NOTES : Big & Bright
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.

NOTES : 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.

Lovely Tea at a great price

I had been ordering my tea direct from Sri Lanka but was bought this tea by a friend and it was really good and much cheaper and quicker. I still like to think that I am supporting the tea growers in Sri Lanka and hope that they are paid a fair price. This tea is perfect for drinking without milk or sugar.

Mild and refreshing

As always tug boat doesn’t disappoint. This tea is beautifully balanced. A lovely mild black tea with a refreshing hint of orange.

Light and refreshing

When we fancy a lighter tasting tea, this is perfect. It is ‘proper’ old fashioned loose leaf tea with large leaves. Thank you Tug Boat - I’m so glad we found you!

It just is....

This is the proper taste of tea. Mornings great - afternoons maybe a Keemun or Blue Lady - interspersed with a Golden Monkey, Skinny Dragon.......... The more tea caddies you have then the more variety on tap. Be adventurous- not exactly expensive to explore.

Very pleasant and clear flavor of the old good Ceylon tea

This is my second buy of this tea. I was looking for a genuine Ceylon and tried many different suppliers with no luck. This one is a head above all I tried.
Strongly recommended. Large leaves, as it used to be in old good times. If you are after Ceylon do not look further.
Thanks Mike, read your kind message, we are fine, thanks to your tea!
