A longer review will be up on www.itsallabouttheleaf.com eventually, but I’ll log it quickly and mention this is loads better than grocery-store brand orange pekoe varieties. Perfect for milk. Nice with a little sweet 1/2 and 1/2 this morning.
Orange Pekoe - Mahagastota Estate
The Mahagastota estate is located in the Nuwara Eliya region of Sri Lanka. This estate is also known as “Lovers Leap”, after a story about a Kings daughter who ran away with her lover to this location and jumped off a high rock wall. This Orange Pekoe has a quality rating of FBOP (Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe), and has a pleasant flowery aroma, followed by the typical malty Ceylon flavoring. Brew this tea to drink hot or cold, and blend with lemonade to make a unique iced tea. We recommend that this tea is consumed without milk, and only sugar to taste. This quality orange pekoe tea works as an afternoon or dinner tea, but can be enjoyed at any time of the day!
