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 Ratnapura. 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.

Excellent Comfort Tea for a rainy day
Thursday, 13 June 2019  |  Ian

Having read the reviews we took the chance and order 1kg and I am glad we did.
On opening the sealed pack we detected the aroma of dried apricots, cacao and fresh, fresh tea.
On pouring the boiled water over the leaves there was a burst of fruit notes that settled into that fresh, fresh almost picked green leaf note.
It makes a strong cup with notes of fresh dry grass, freshly picked green leaf and a subtle after taste of honey.
From our perspective a great breakfast cup to wake your taste buds up and comfort you, with thoughts of summer, on a rainy day.
