Tea Story

This 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.

Solid tea but don't write home
Friday, 29 May 2015  |  Jonathan

This tea was nice, delicate and light. But it didn't particularly wow myself or my friends.

If you're looking for a decent black tea then this might be for you, but it won't change your world.
