Ceylon Pekoe OP
To avoid major differences in colour, aroma and taste, our Ceylon Tea is harvested from various mountain heights, soil structures and environmental conditions. From here we receive numerous types of teas with various flavours and aromas.
We have thus created a unique and exclusive blend by combining these variants in one batch. Our tea lovers have become accustomed to a taste of their own, offset by the distinct flavourings creating a blend of unvarying quality, with a perfectly strong and stable grade throughout all harvests.
Ingredients: 100% Ceylon Pekoe OP.
Origin of Black Tea
Black Tea is the result of blending the oldest leaves of one of the Camellia sinensis bushes. Compared to other teas, Black Tea has the highest percentage of oxidation. This difference will make Black Tea more intense in flavour. After harvesting, the green leaves undergo an osmosis process lasting up to 20 hours. Later, they are rolled by hand or by machines. It is at this stage that the tea leaves begin their oxidization process. Finally, the leaves are left to dry naturally.
Sri Lanka Tea (Ceylon Tea)
The unique Sri Lankan Tea also known as Ceylon Tea, is recognized as one of the best teas in the world. The Tea Culture in Sri Lanka is so characteristic that the production of tea leaves is higher per capita. According to tea lovers, no other country in the world produces this quantity of high-quality tea leaves. Every year, an estimated 328,000 kilos of tea leaves are produced in Sri Lanka.
The island of Sri Lanka or Ceylon (colonial name) is characterized by endless mountains and valleys filled with tea bushes. The picking of tea leaves is solely carried out by women of various ages. Ceylon Tea is the main agricultural product exported from Sri Lanka. Hence, it is the most important activity on the island as it contributes to the employment of more than 1 million people.
