The second that the aroma of the Amba Estate Hand Rolled OP1 hit my olfactory glands, there was an immediate passion developed. Because of my love of this tea, and my belief that this is the best black tea coming out of Sri Lanka, I decided to import it and offer through The Tea Journeyman Shop.

Compare this Amba Estate OP1 to other high quality OP1 black teas out of Sri Lanka, and prepare to be amazed with the differences among them. The dry leaves are long and leggy, with plenty of golden tips. The aroma of the dry leaves is full and robust.

The liquor has the typical bright Ceylon black tea color, yet has a touch of depth that can be attributed to the hybrid bushes of Camellia Sinensis Sinensis and Assamica. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and minty. The body is full, with a brisk mouthfeel. The taste is a perfect combination of Ceylon and Assam, with notes of citrus, malt, toffee, papaya, and mint.

Another sign of the Amba Estate OP1’s superiority to other Ceylon black teas is the fact that you may used the leaves three or more times and still get amazing quality infusions. I challenge you to find me a Ceylon black tea that can match the Amba Estate OP1 in consistency of color, aroma, and flavor through multiple infusions. Believe me, I love being wrong, and I love Ceylon teas, so please present a challenge. :-)
