Ceylon Nuwara Eliya High Grown Orange Pekoe: grown in the highest parts of Sri Lanka’s central highlands
A medium bodied, mellow and floral Ceylon Nuwara Eliya high grown from Sri Lanka’s central highlands. The leaf has a lovely aromatic, tobacco-like aroma. In the cup Ceylon Nuwara Eliya High Grown is deep bronze and has a most appealing elegance and lack of tannins. Use one teaspoon per person plus one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for three minutes. Can be taken with milk.
Good “Light bodied, well balanced Ceylon.”
A perfect afternoon cuppa “Just the thing when you want something a little lighter than breakfast tea. It’s got a smooth flavour and great colour. I think it works well weak with no milk as well as brewed a little longer with milk. A nice and tasty tea.”
An interesting tea with a hint of sweetness “Another one to try later in the day when you need a lift. It’s quite distinctive with a light sweet taste to the brew. Don’t over brew it to keep the subtle flavours from being masked by the tannins. Nice colour and goes with milk and a ginger biscuit just right.”
My favourite tea “We bought Ceylon teas years ago when we had access to a speciality tea store which has since closed. So I was delighted to find this tea again, through internet shopping, and to find that it is just as good as I remember. It is bright and has a lovely flavour.”
Excellent Tea “An excellent tea with great colour and taste, arrived very quickly after ordering, a wonderful service.”
Very well rounded, though not typical Ceylon tea. “It tastes noticeably different from other Ceylon teas that you can find on this website. And it is nothing like the ‘Ceylon’ flavour of the teas that can be found in supermarkets. Still, I like the balance in the delicate taste of this tea very much. Somehow this tea has everything right about it.”
