From Peet's Coffee & Tea

From the best estate in Sri Lanka’s Ratnapura district, this special seasonal lot has a rich, pungent and malty flavor.

Ratnapura is known as the “gem country” of this island nation, as it is a region rich in precious stones. In spite of the relatively low altitude of this area, there is one tea estate that can produce what is perhaps the country’s finest tea, when the weather and processing steps are perfect.

The leaves are very stylish, appearing thin and wiry, and colored black with shiny tips. For those who know Peet’s Ceylon Fancy with its tangy and citrusy flavor, this tea has a flavor that is altogether different: full bodied, pungent and slightly sweet, with aromatic notes of malt and tobacco, and a dry finish.

Brewing: Measure one rounded teaspoon per cup, add boiling water, and steep for four to five minutes.
(SLR) Sri Lanka Ratnapura OP is $15.45 per 4 oz.
Each 4 oz tin of loose leaf tea makes about 40 cups.
