When I am in the mood for a classic Ceylon black tea, the Uva Greenland OP1 is my first choice. This is a mid-altitude grown Ceylon black tea, therefore it combines some of the floral characters of the high-grown Ceylon teas with some of the malty characters of the low-grown Ceylon tea. Of course, the refreshingly brisk character and bright liquor color that Ceylon black teas are known for is most certainly present, as well.
Perhaps the first thing that one may notice about the dry leaves of the Uva Greenland OP1 is the incredibly fresh appearance and aroma. This tea was harvested and manufactured and immediately shipped to my door from the Uva Halpewatte Factory. The dry leaves have welcoming scents of cocoa, malt, and flowers.
The liquor is bright, clean, and fragrant, with scents of citrus, light malt, and flowers. The body is medium, with a brisk character. The taste has notes of light malt, flowers, and light citrus.
This classic tea can be enjoyed by casual tea drinkers and enthusiasts alike. With or without additives, this is an aromatic and flavorful tea that will prove to be a reliable source of daily tea drinking pleasure.
