Description

This Kandy OP comes from the Sylvakandy Tea Estate which is located in the Matale tea growing district of Sri Lanka. The estate is situated at between 500 feet and 1000 feet and is very well known for producing well manufactured teas. This Sylvakandy Orange Pekoe has a large orthodox even sized leaf.

Grade- Orange Pekoe ( OP )

Ingredients- Black Tea from Sir Lanka

Brewing Guide- We recommend using 1 teaspoon of the leaf, but if you like a stronger tea, then you could use up to 1½. This tea tastes best with freshly boiled water (roughly 100 degrees) and left to infuse for 3 to 5 minutes. If you wanted your tea to be stronger, you can leave it for up to 7 minutes.

How to Serve- Depending on personal taste, you can serve with Milk, Lemon, Honey, Sugar or Mint.

Tasting Notes- A wonderful and rich in cup with fine floral notes

Colour in Cup- A bright golden colour in the cup

Pack sizes available- 50g, 125g, 250g, 500g, 1 Kilo. ( We pack everything fresh to order, nothing is off the shelf ! ). We pack all our teas in a unique material which combines card and foil, regarded as the best for retaining freshness and quality.

Storage- In an airtight container away from other strong scents and heat. We would recommend using this tea within a year of purchasing.

Health Benefits- Black tea has been said to help aid weight-loss. It also contains a nice level of caffeine to give you a more natural boost without the crash after a few hours.

Advice on tea you might like- Ceylon Dimbula Kirkoswald FBOP Estate Tea, Ceylon Ruhunu Lumbini Estate OP1 or Ceylon Uva Dyraaba Orange Pekoe 1

    Good flavour mild flavour. However, as I prefer a stronger taste I found that one has to put more tea leaves in a pot.

    A lovely tea. I would rather complete this immediately after drinking it, but as i recall, it was light and floral in flavour. I am not sure that it is worth the difference relative to Kand BOP, but wortg trying.

    Superb Ceylon from the Kandy region that is full bodied with floral notes. If you've had the pleasure of trying a Vithanakande Ceylon then you will enjoy this just as much. Your wallet will enjoy it even more as this is a bargain! It's certainly a different tea and one for special occasions in my eyes. Like... Read More.
