Ceylon Burning Sun | Black Tea
"This is my favorite breakfast tea; strong with a complex flavor profile (kind of a cross of dark fruits and dark beer) and wonderfully aromatic, takes milk and sugar very well; yet is rich and smooth on its own. This tea has won a numerous awards in international competitions. A great classic tea by a masterful tea maker Chaminda Jayawardana, Lumbini Tea Factory, Deniyaya, Sri Lanka." -Bill
Description: Awarded 1st place in the 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. It has dark, fruit notes, clarity, brightness as you sip, and a lingering finish with just a hint of briskness.
The Lumbini Tea Garden is a family-owned tea garden in the Southern Ruhuna District of Ceylon. They make prize-winning teas recognized around the world. TeaSource has been buying directly from Lumbini for more than 12 years.
