ceylon

From the island of Sri Lanka, which still retains its old colonial name for matters dealing with tea, these are bright, flavorful, brisk, and refeshing teas.

Ceylon Burning Sun

Ceylon Burning Sun

4 oz. $9.97

Awarded 1st place in the 2014 North American Tea Championship in the "Breakfast Blend" category!

This tea is a perfect blend of strength and complexity-which is pretty rare. The Lumbini Estate has blended many broken golden tips into this tea, giving it a thick/weighty mouth feel, with multiple dark fruit notes, a clarity and brightness as you sip, and a lingering finish with just a hint of briskness.

Lumbini Estate, FBOP

Lumbini Estate, FBOP

4 oz. $8.97

This exceptional black tea brews up with a deep rich aroma and a gorgeous copper/red hue. The liquor is very full-bodied with complex, thick flavor notes and hints of a spicy sweetness.

Lumbini Estate, OPA, Large Leaf

Lumbini Estate, OPA, Large Leaf

4 oz. $5.87

This is probably the smoothest, most mellow Ceylon black tea we have ever had. The tea leaves are fragrant, deep dark black with a slight twist and are absolutely huge. The cup is full-bodied with gentle sweet notes, and just the tiniest bit of crispness.

Oodooware Estate BOP

Oodooware Estate BOP

4 oz. $7.97

This is a wonderfully aromatic tea. The large wiry leaves produce a liquor that is very smooth, mellow, with a hint of a melony sweetness, in a cup that is very balanced and full-bodied.

Vithanakanda Estate, Extra Special

Vithanakanda Estate, Extra Special

4 oz. $14.88

This is a beautiful, fine, wiry leaf with thin strands of silver leaf throughout. It has an incredibly rich and spicy aroma. This tea steeps up full-bodied, rich and thick, with a very complex flavor profile that includes a spicy licoricy note, hints of ripe fruit, and a hint of a dark caramel note.
