This is my first venture into single estate Ceylon tea and I must say its been very enjoyable. This tea steeps up to a yellowish brown color and it really does remind you of a Darjeeling tea. The tea is woodsy and slightly fruity at the same time. It has no bitterness and is only slightly astringent. This is broken leaf tea in nylon pyramid tea bags and the leaf is quite large and beautiful. The tea is crisp and light and I really loved it.
Lover's Leap Estate
High above the town of Nuwara Eliya, Lover’s Leap is
named after the tragic legend of two young lover’s who
leaped from the top of a picturesque waterfall on the estate.
An area of outstanding beauty, where the crisp mountain
area carries the fragrance of abundant cypress groves,
eucalyptus and wild mint.
Tasting Notes: Light brown-yellow with green nuances. Bright, breezy, effortlessly light and snappy yet with tannins of fortitude. Long lasting in aftertaste. Like Champagne made from cool climate grapes picked just before they get too ripe. And exquisite and alluring tea.
