Ceylon Morawaka BOP1
“The Morawaka teas are known for their freshness and the embodiment of a fine “Low Grown” Ceylon (Sri Lanka) tea. Joy’s Teaspoon is proud to have ventured into a partnership to bring these environmentally friendly and socially just leaves to our tea drinking friends in the United States!
Morawaka Estate, located in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka, is owned and operated by Sumedha and Kumari Kulatunga. With their giant hearts, they provide more than just an income for their employees. With the help of local social services the estate supports a school for under-privileged children, a nurturing daycare for the female dominated work force, medical, dental and eye camps for employees and their families, neutering of animals, and countless other counseling and support services. As if that alone was not enough, they are also protecting their cultivators by growing these aromatic and spicy teas with clean, environmentally friendly practices. Composting, use of recyclable packaging materials, soil preservation and planting responsibly are just a few of the steps being taken within the estate.
About the tea…
This superior quality tea provides a rich, spicy flavor that is like none other. Grown at a lower level in Sri Lanka, Morawaka teas provide a dark cup and strong flavor. These exquisite leaves, dark, with hints of gold, will be slightly smaller than the OP1 variation and provide an excellent introduction for a new Ceylon tea drinker.
