Tea Story

About the tea
This exquisite breakfast tea imparts all the well-loved characteristics of premium Ceylon teas. The BOPF (Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings) grading of this black loose leaf tea gives a strong and full-bodied cup with an abundance of flavour. The tea leaves have a beautiful caramel aroma with a golden-dark colour and full-bodied brisk flavour unique to the region. 

For those who seek an authentic Ceylon tea, this version is certain to tick all the boxes, and this makes a wonderful choice of breakfast tea too. Milk and sugar should be added per your personal preference.

About the factory
Founded in 1968, the BHP group was established by Mr B H Perirs. Since its inception, it has expanded and now includes two tea factories. The Nawalakanda factory, where our Ceylon Breakfast tea is produced, has wonderfully strong ties to the local community. In fact, they deem this a very important aspect in their work, stating “we believe we’ve discovered the formula for the perfect cup of tea: a strong connection with our local community and a mastery of blending single origin tea learnt through decades of experience…” The Nawalakanda factory also has firm relationships with almost 6000 smallholder farmers. This investment in community and relationships is one of the many reasons we love working with them.
The factory also has stringent quality testing for their teas, and the process in which they are produced is aimed towards maintaining the quality and retaining the famous taste and characterises of Ceylon tea. 

About the region
Our Ceylon breakfast tea is grown in the foothills of Rapnapura. This region receives a high amount of rainfall (over 2500mm a year) which helps ensure lush green tea buds every season and the rich soil and climatic conditions factors heavily into its unique character and shape. 

Ingredients: Pure Ceylon Black Tea.


Region & Time of Harvest

This tea is harvested all year round from Ratnapura, Sri Lanka

Loose Tea revival
Tuesday, 31 October 2017  |  David

Like most people our cupboard is full of tea bags. We had some Earl Grey the other day at a cafe, and it was so good I asked where it had come from, So started my love affair with loose tea from Tea Makers of London. So far have tried English Breakfast,Supreme Earl Grey & and special green tea. All the product is of exceptional quality and my whole family are "Hooked". Give it a try, you will not be disappointed

My favourite tea!
Saturday, 12 August 2017  |  Linda

I have only been drinking this kind of loose tea for about a year. What a revelation! For many decades my usual choice has been teabags.

The flavour is delicious and caramelly. I now brew it in a cup with a special filter which I bought from Tea Makers. This makes it taste a little more smokey for some reason. Would not be without this tea and look forward to the first brew every morning.
