Chocolate Orange Tea is a scented Sri Lanka Black Tea teeming with character and charm. The orthodox leaves used in its making come from Nuwara Eliya, Uva and Dimbula, all of which belong to the Orange Pekoe 1 (OP1) grade.
To these, we blend intense notes of Spanish Oranges and Belgian White Chocolate. It is an infusion, perhaps unsurprisingly, well-suited to the sweet tooth.
It’s worth noting, too, that Chocolate Orange Tea, like most types of Black Tea, flavoured or unflavoured, contains caffeine. This stimulating chemical compound, as most will know already, provides an energising boost first thing in the morning.
Specifically, it has around 45-mg per 8-oz cup. Still, the vast majority of people choose it because, simply put, it tastes heavenly.

Basics of Ceylon Tea
Ceylon Tea first emerged when Sri Lanka, then a British colony, was also called Ceylon. This took place during the 19th century after a plant-based disease known as Coffee Rust all but destroyed the island’s Coffee crop.
Growing Tea, as a result, became an alternative for hundreds of farmers. It ultimately proved to be a tremendous success - as our Chocolate Orange Tea stands testament.
