Ceylon Dimbula St Andrew's OP1: A deliciously honeyish, full-bodied tea.

The unmistakeable aroma of rich honey with a hint of tobacco makes this beautifully twisted, full-bodied Ceylon tea a great delight. Sweetly fragrant, smooth and well-rounded this OP1 grade tea is deep bronze in the cup. The garden was established in 1880 near Talawakelle in the Dimbula district. It is situated at an altitude of about 4000 feet. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly drawn and boiled water. Infuse for five minutes. Best drunk without milk.

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Ceylon Dimbula St Andrew's has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

Ceylon Dimbula St Andrew's loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!
