Description

Ceylon Dimbula Kirkoswald FBOP Estate Tea is a Sri Lanka Black Tea known for its full-bodied flavour. Those who like a hearty infusion would do well to choose it, as well as anyone who has a passion for Ceylon Tea in general.

It is one of many products we pack fresh to order. This is our unique way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.

But that’s not all on offer here. It’s worth noting, too, that Ceylon Dimbula Kirkoswald FBOP Estate Tea contains a significant amount of caffeine, specifically 45-mg per 8-oz cup. Then there is the fact that, when combined with a healthy and active lifestyle, it comes with Black Tea benefits. Why not discover its full potential today with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company?

About The Kirkoswald Tea Estate

This garden lies in the Dimbula district of Central Province, Sri Lanka, some 1,300 metres above sea level. Two partners named Kirk and Oswald developed the estate in the mid-19th century following the devastation of the local Coffee industry.

They remained the owners until their passing in the late 1800s. Their legacy, however, has lived on in remarkable beverages such as this one.

In recent years, Kirkoswald has won awards for the best Pekoe and FBOP from Dimbula. The latter term, in particular, stands for “Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe,” which is a Tea grade of many noteworthy qualities.

Perhaps most importantly, the fact that manufacturers have broken up its leaves into slightly smaller pieces enables it to boast a stronger flavour when brewed.

Benefits of Ceylon Dimbula Kirkoswald FBOP Estate Tea

This beverage contains several vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants - most notably, theaflavins and thearubigins. Such chemical compounds do much to support your health and wellbeing through their work combating free radicals in the body.

Ultimately, thanks to Ceylon Dimbula Kirkoswald FBOP Estate Tea’s ability to fight free radicals, thus slowing oxidation, it reduces the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions. And yet, there’s more.

Evidence suggests that it might, although not yet proven outright, reduce the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's disease. This is according to a study conducted by the University of Singapore and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The project saw some 2,500 volunteers aged 55 or over undergo cognitive measuring. Two years later, researchers re-evaluated every participant involved.

The results made clear that those who drank two or three cups of Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline. Those who drank six to ten cups a day, meanwhile, had up to a 63% lower chance.

  7. More UVA than Dimbula in flavour. Too pale to take milk and be used for a breakfast tea. Quite bitter Uva-like aftertaste
