Large leaf, full bodied, smooth Ceylon tea without most of the caffeine
Large leaf, full bodied, smooth Ceylon tea without most of the caffeine. Using CO2 decaffeination rather then harsh chemicals it is a little lighter in flavour than our regular Ceylon Pekoe but does retain more of its natural flavours and delivers a very tasty alternative for those wanting to limit their caffeine intake. Works well black or with a splash of milk.
Brewing the best cup. One 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.
