Quintessential Ceylon tea. This is a classic, thirst-quenching breakfast tea
The quintessential Ceylon tea. This well-balanced, bright tea is a classic thirst-quenching brew. Big, bright, golden leaves give a full-bodied, refreshing cup to be enjoyed at any time of the day. Works well black or with a splash of milk.
Brewing the best cup.1 teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, a good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes for most black teas (depending on your preference for strength)and enjoy with or without milk
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.
Sri Lankan Black Tea
As always tug boat doesn’t disappoint. This tea is beautifully balanced. A lovely mild black tea with a refreshing hint of orange.
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!
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.
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!
Makes for a very refreshing afternoon tea. Habit picked up in the hills of Sri Lanka!
