Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Ceylon Tea Sarnia Broken Orange Pekoe comes from the Uva Province in Sri Lanka. It is a type of Ceylon Black Tea BOP consisting of modest-sized, wiry leaves, which, when brewed, boast soft, sweet, spicy notes.
We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, which is nestled in the stunning vistas of the Kentish countryside. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.
But that’s not all this Tea can offer. It’s worth noting, for instance, that it contains a significant amount of caffeine - around 45-mg per 8-oz cup.
If, then, you are looking for an extra boost first thing in the morning, you’ve chosen well here. Additionally, according to the latest scientific research, it comes with Black Tea benefits. What more could you want from your morning cuppa?
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 Tea Sarnia Broken Orange Pekoe is what some would consider a “hearty brew.” If you prefer subtler flavours, consider choosing an FOP instead.
About Tea From Uva District
Uva is a province in Sri Lanka that has, for centuries, produced some of the finest-quality Ceylon Teas available. This beautiful, remarkable region lies relatively close to Kandy and Nuwara Eliya - two equally prestigious Tea-growing districts.
However, Uva remains one of the most remote areas of the country, as well as being the second-least populated.
Those who live here rely heavily on the local Tea industry to sustain their lives, with crops harvested at elevations of 900-1,500 metres. Exposed to winds created by northeast and southwest monsoons, Uva Tea is the product of distinct climatic conditions.
Our Ceylon Tea Sarnia Broken Orange Pekoe is one such example, going above and beyond to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike.
