Ceylon Orange Pekoe (International Blend) - 25 Envelopes

£3.00 for 1 box

- +

Back in the 1860s, when Sri Lanka was called Ceylon, the island's economy was in crisis. The coffee crop had failed, and there was only one thing for it: to grow tea instead. But no one could have imagined how light or fresh that tea would be. After one sip of the amber liquid, the islanders' thirst was quenched. And coffee was forgotten forever.

This blend is made especially for our international business - the leaf grade being "orange pekoe", which means that the tea contains long pointed leaves that have been harvested just after the end buds open into leaf.

"After one sip of the amber liquid..."

We believe that how you make your black tea is as important as the tea you use, so here are our tips:

- Use freshly drawn cold water
- Use water at a “rolling boil” (100?C)
- Use 1 teabag per cup or 1 teabag per person in a teapot
- Steep for 3 to 5 minutes (or to your taste)
- Very versatile - great with or without a touch of milk
- A light citrus character means it's perfect cooled and iced
… and for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!
