Furthermore, Ceylon Tea BOP Dimbula Gouravilla, like all Black Teas, can improve daily living in small yet significant ways. According to new research, it boosts the metabolism of fat cells. This, in turn, enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. It also improves cardiovascular health by lowering "bad" LDL cholesterol.
But that's not all that this Tea can do. Indeed, there is much more waiting to be discovered with every cuppa' brewed. Why not realise its true potential 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 a FOP (Flowery Orange Pekoe) Tea.
About The Gouravilla Tea Estate
Gouravilla dates back to 1922 when the estate belonged to George Stuarts & Co. Today, it makes up part of Horana Plantations. The estate produces some 21,000 kg of Tea every day! This indeed includes our very own Ceylon Tea BOP Dimbula Gouravilla.
About Sri Lanka's Tea Industry
The potential for a Sri Lankan Tea Industry dates back to when the country was still known as Ceylon. After a plant-based disease decimated the island's Coffee industry, the introduction of Tea proved to be a saving grace.
According to recent statistics, Sri Lanka is the second largest export of Tea in the world, accounting for 19.2% of total global output. It will no doubt continue to grow with beverages such as our Ceylon Tea BOP Dimbula Gouravilla leading the way.
