Brewing instructions
Description

Ceylon Tea Nuwara Eliya BOP is a type of Black Tea from Sri Lanka. Its grade, as the name suggests, is BOP, which stands for “Broken Orange Pekoe.” This is where workers quite literally break the leaves into smaller pieces, thus enhancing the flavour of the infusion.

Most people indeed consider it a heartier brew than FOP (Flowery Orange Pekoe), although this particular beverage is somewhat lighter than others.

If you’re wondering, “does Ceylon Tea Nuwara Eliya BOP contain caffeine?,” the answer is “yes.” Specifically, it has around 45-mg per 8-oz cup, which should be enough to provide you with an energy boost.

Then there is the fact that, according to scientific research, it comes with Black Tea benefits. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring quality and consistency.

Brief History of Ceylon Tea

This country most famously makes Ceylon Black Tea. However, before 1869, it’s primary cash crop was Coffee - which that same year suffered at the hands of a plant-based disease.

It was the hard work and determination of a Scotsman named James Taylor responsible for saving this then-British colony from ruin. Ceylon Tea became the answer - followed, eventually, by this remarkable beverage.

Nuwara Eliya - All You Need to Know

Nuwara Eliya is a district in Central Province, Sri Lanka. It mostly consists of rugged, mountainous terrain, and is home to the highest elevation point of any growing region in the country.

Most Estates lie at around 1,900 metres (6,200 feet) above sea level, which has a significant influence on the taste and profile of the Tea found here. Our Ceylon Tea Nuwara Eliya BOP is one such example.

This region, before British exploration in 1818, was effectively uninhabited. Today, however, it is one of the best places to grow Tea in the world. Nuwara Eliya’s air is cool and refreshing; the winds are scented with eucalyptus and wild mint.

It has a unique climate, too, which is another factor to the extraordinary taste of Ceylon Tea Nuwara Eliya BOP. Why not find out for yourself?

Benefits of Ceylon Tea Nuwara Eliya BOP

Health Benefits: Although not yet proven outright, some researchers believe that Tea (no matter the type) can reduce the risk of developing cancer.

Preliminary evidence from a 2015 meta-analysis has already shown promising results. It noted that drinking a brew a day could reduce cancer risks by 2%.

Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.
