This black tea comes from the High Grown garden of Adwatte, in the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Its large leaves give this tea a rich complexity of taste, softening its powerful and malty notes. We happily drink it either lightly infused without any addition or powerfully infused with a little milk. Cold, whole milk should be put at the bottom of the cup before pouring in the hot tea!
The OP grade (for Orange Pekoe) designates a tea of great finesse (Orange means "royal", named after the Dutch dynasty Oranje Nassau), made up of the terminal buds of the tea plant in whole leaves (Pekoe, from the Chinese dialect of Xiamen “pek-ho” meaning “white flowers”, in reference to the silky white of the buds). It comes from manual picking and orthodox production.
Ceylon tea is a black tea originating from Sri Lanka. Coming from a long tradition dating from the middle of the 19th century, then popularized by Thomas Lipton, it is drunk today all over the world and is characterized by a strong and robust taste. It is classified according to the altitude at which the tea has grown, which is proportional to its strength of taste: Low Grown below 600 meters, Mid Grown between 600 and 1200 meters and High Grown above.
