Brewing instructions
Description

Ceylon Pettiagalla Tea OP (Orange Pekoe) is a high-grade Sri Lanka Tea from the Pettiagalla Tea Estate. It consists of long, wiry, dark-coloured leaves, which, when brewed, produce a deep red liquor, a fine aroma and a smooth, mild taste.

We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled in the stunning vistas of the Kentish countryside. This is our way of guaranteeing both quality and consistency.

It’s worth noting, too, that Ceylon Pettiagalla Tea OP has around 45-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. Additionally, according to the latest scientific research, it promotes weight loss, improves heart health, aids digestion, enhances cognitive function and reduces diabetes risks.

Whether you serve it as a warming cuppa in the winter or a cooling Iced Tea in the winter, you’re bound to love it.

Orange Pekoe Tea - Fact vs Fiction

A common misconception is that Orange Pekoe is a specific Type of Tea. The term, in truth, refers to a grade. It means that the Tea contains leaves larger than FOP (Flowery Orange Pekoe), which is often the case with Ceylon Tea.

Indeed, the chances are that, when you order an “Orange Pekoe Tea” at a cafe or restaurant, you’re getting an infusion like our Ceylon Pettiagalla OP.

Pettiagalla Tea Estate

This Loose Leaf Tea is the product of the Pettiagalla Tea Estate. The garden finds itself near the town of Balangoda, which in turn is in the Ratnapura District of Sabaragamuwa Province, Sri Lanka.

Tea bushes are situated at altitudes ranging from 1,670 to 3,600 feet above sea level. Such a factor has a considerable influence on your morning cuppa - as, hopefully, you’re about to find out!

How to Brew Pettiagalla Tea

1, Add Ceylon Pettiagalla OP to a Tea Filter or Infuser.

2, Place the item in a mug or cup.

3, Boil water and pour it over the leaves.

4, Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.

How to Serve: Milk, non dairy milk for tea, sugar, honey or lemon - the choice is yours. Alternatively, serve black.

Health Benefits of Ceylon Pettiagalla Tea OP

Did you know that Ceylon Pettiagalla OP can support your immune system? This is for many reasons. First, it contains alkylamine and tannins, the latter of which might fight viruses such as influenza.

Then there are the antibacterial properties of Black Tea, which, as the name suggests, combat bacteria. Furthermore, Black Tea polyphenols do much to ward off common colds.

One study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences can support these claims. It found that it boosted the body’s defences against infection while priming the immune system to attack invading bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Then, of course, there’s the fact that anyone and everyone tends to feel better after brewing up a nice, hot brew!
