When brewed, it has a fine, golden liquor with bold flavours considered medium in strength. We pack it fresh to order - our way of guaranteeing both quality and consistency.

In the meantime, if you’re wondering, “does Ceylon Orange Pekoe Tea contain caffeine?,” the answer is “yes.” This stimulating chemical compound, as most will know already, provides an energy boost once consumed.

There is a chance it comes with health benefits, too, so it’s a win on all fronts! Why not discover its true potential today? You won’t be disappointed.

What Does “BOP” Mean?

BOP stands for “Broken Orange Pekoe,” referring to how the leaves have, quite literally, been broken into smaller pieces. This creates a stronger, bolder flavour in cup when compared to Flowery Orange Pekoe (FOP).

As such, Ceylon Orange Pekoe Tea (BOP Dimbula Campion Estate) is what some would consider a “hearty cuppa.” If you prefer subtler flavours, consider choosing an FOP instead.


Facts About Ceylon Tea

  • The term “Ceylon Tea” is a remnant of colonial days. This was when the island today known as “Sri Lanka” was, too, called Ceylon.

  • Recent statistics suggest that Sri Lanka is the fourth-largest Tea producer in the world with nearly 350,000 tonnes of it shipped every year.
  • Plantations (with Campion Tea Estate among them) cover around 4% of the island’s landmass. An estimated 5% of the local population, meanwhile, works in the industry.
