From Britannia Teas and Gifts

Coming from one of the best tea gardens in Sri Lanka, this tea is bright and coppery with an excellent flowery flavour. Watch how the leaf uncurls and expands with boiling water. A good after-dinner tea.

1 TB for 450mL boiling water, 5-minute steep.

I don’t often choose a Ceylon tea, as I generally find them a bit bland and crying out to be blended. I have the same reaction to the Nilgiris I’ve tried. But the Lover’s Leap estate tea is different. This is a very coppery tea — it even brews up a coppery colour — and it’s quite bright, a bit like drinking afternoon sunshine. There’s a slight astringency that’s very agreeable and a clean mineral finish. A very good tea for this cloudy and rainy day.

Lover’s Leap is available through many different tea vendors; I got it from my local indie shop, Britannia Teas and Gifts.

This is one of my favorite teas from Britannia! It helps me relax when I’m all tense, me son!
