Copper red beguiler for your five o’clock tea
It was the Scotsman James Taylor who first planted Ceylon tea back in 1870. Today, India’s southernmost neighbour in the Bay of Bengal is the island nation named Sri Lanka, but in the traditional tea trade, the teas grown there are still known as Ceylon teas. The most important tea districts are Dimbula, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy and Uva. These regions are known for growing smooth full-flavoured teas with a wonderful, copper red cup which stands up relatively well to hard water. In many ways, it is their medium, somewhat modest aroma of malt and faint, citrus-like notes of flavour which make Ceylon teas one of the essential components of the traditional English blends.
Lovers Leap Nuwara Eliya – The ‘heart’ of the tea country located at an altitude of 1980 meters in the central highlands of this beautiful tropical island. It offers the best of both, tropical abundance and pleasant cool mountain climate. While the daytime climate is sub-tropical, night temperature plunge low enough to cover everything with frost.
