From Tea Story

Our best Ceylon OP, even, wiry, copper colored leaf. Fresh citric flavory taste without the sour aftertaste.

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.

Tea sent to me by a Tea Story. Ceylons tend to get a bad wrap around here – they’re often too brisk/coppery for a lot of folks or people think of red rose sort of experiences. I’ve had a few really great ceylons but this one is super. Missing from this cup is that brassy/copper note that a lot of ceylone have. Instead this is very smooth and easy to drink. Resteeps of this were also great – not diminishing in the flavour. Looking forward to trying a few more from a Tea Story if this is my first experience with them.

thanks so much for the sample!
