The smooth and delicate flavour of this exquisite loose leaf tea can be attributed to the unique weather conditions on the Adam’s Peak tea estate in Sri Lanka. Situated at 7,000ft above sea level, the misty morning mountain dew and long periods of dense sunlight, endows this ‘Finest Broken Orange Pekoe Flowery - Extra Special’ category of tea with an exceptional flavour.
Made from the most tender buds and bursting with silver tips, this is an outstanding tea that can be enjoyed mid-morning or in the afternoon. The tea is particularly flavoursome when taken with a little milk.
Adam's Peak tea plantation is situated in the Ratnapura district of Sri Lanka, adjoining the mountain of the 'Holy Footprint’ - also known as ‘Adam's Peak’. This tea estate was one of the very early plantations cultivated in the region and is renowned for producing unique and authentic orthodox teas. Adam’s Peak has been a place of pilgrimage for Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus for hundreds of years, as it is believed that Buddha, Adam or Shiva left his footprint on the mountain-top.
Ingredients: Pure Ceylon Black Tea.
Region & Time of Harvest
This tea is harvested all year round in Maskeliya, Sri Lanka (Ceylon).
Of all the black teas I buy from The Tea Makers Adam's Peak Special is my favourite but it's not cheap so I reserve it for lazy Sunday mornings. It is the tastiest tea of all and I love it. I'm drinking some as I type this. The Tea Makers is an excellent company - I never buy tea from anyone else.
I was surprised just how complex this black tea is. Full of character and just what you need in a pick-me-up tea. I found it best with a splash of milk. Only reason for the 4 star is it is a little overpriced for me.
I first tried this tea in the Premium Black Tea Discovery Pack and it was so obviously my favorite that I just had to buy a 100g pack - I'm so glad I did, the rich malty taste makes it a refreshing morning tea - the rich tones helps it lift the spirits what ever time you drink it.
I'd strongly recommend it.

Very rich taste and delicate aroma of fruit that gives good after the taste.
