Tea Story

This luxury Ceylon loose leaf black tea is produced in the famous Lover's Leap estate in Sri Lanka. It is a medium-strength tea with a light golden liquor. This loose leaf tea has been manufactured using the traditional orthodox technique practiced in Sri Lanka for 150 years. The method calls for a short fermentation that preserves the quality and delicate flavours of the tea.

Lovers Leap teas are high-grown at 5,700 feet above sea level. The plantation has an interesting history, dating back to the very early days when tea was first introduced as a commercial crop in Ceylon. Lover’s Leap was the only tea plantation owned by the Ceylon tea pioneer, Scotsman James Taylor. Today we offer you this exquisite tea, made in the same plantation where the story of Ceylon tea began all those years ago.

Lover's Leap is named after the tragic legend of two young lovers who leapt from the top of a picturesque waterfall on the estate. The garden is located in an area of outstanding beauty, where the crisp mountain air carries the fragrance of abundant cypress groves, eucalyptus and wild mint.

With this tea, you are not only tasting a great brew but also indulging in the history of Ceylon tea.

An ideal late evening or after-dinner beverage.  Add a touch of honey or fresh lemon to enhance the natural flavours of the tea.

Ingredients: Pure Ceylon Black Tea.

We loved your Kenilworth Single Estate but decided to try Lovers Leap for a change. We were not disappointed. Slightly less astringent than the Kenilworth but full of flavour. Ideal tea for drinking any time of the day.

A Lovely Cup of Tea
Monday, 12 April 2021  |  Andreas

I first tried this tea a couple of years back but with a different company and was largely unimpressed, recently I discovered The Tea Makers of London website and I thought I would give the tea another try, I am so glad that I did.
For me personally it did not make the grade of being reordered, but only because I have a long list of other teas that I would always drink first, and this tea is not on that list.
It is a lovely cup of tea and would recommend trying it as you might like it!
