Brewing instructions
Description

Ceylon Aislaby BOP Estate Tea is a type of Black Tea from Sri Lanka. It has a strong, full-bodied, almost spicy taste in cup, which is well suited to those who like a hearty brew.

The same strength applies to its caffeine content - around 45-mg per serving. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled within the captivating Kentish countryside.

This guarantees not only quality but also consistency.

It’s worth noting, too, that the Aislaby Estate has long held an outstanding reputation for the Tea it produces. This particular infusion is, of course, no exception, going above and beyond to impress all those who drink it.

Furthermore, according to scientific research, it might come with Black Tea Health Benefits. Why not buy from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company today?

What Does “BOP” Mean?

“BOP” stands for “Broken Orange Pekoe”. The term “broken”, as the name likely suggests, refers to the leaves being broken into small pieces.

This often boasts a stronger character in cup than that of an FOP (Flowery Orange Pekoe) Tea. This is part of the reason why our Ceylon Aislaby BOP Estate Tea boasts such a flavoursome character when brewed.
