A milder tea than eg the English Breakfast. Smooth and refreshing.
superb loose tea. We have been NON tea bag drinkers for many years, in fact over 40 years since visiting Sri Lanka 40 years & visiting the tea Plantations.
excellent delivery service received with 24 hours of ordering
This is an excellent quality Sri Lankan tea, ideal for an afternoon cup of tea !!
Reminds me of my childhood in Sri Lanka.
Ceylon orange pekoe- fresh sharp with full after taste
This is my favourite tea for sitting in the late afternoon sunshine sharing a pot with friends. Will be extra pleased when it finally comes from Sri Lanka
The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
