A delightful black tea handpicked by the BRUU team during a visit to Sri Lanka. It's light, well rounded and full of flavour and one of the freshest teas you will find in the UK.
How our drink hits the senses:
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU;
It looks like it's packed with flavour but was picked only yesterday. Both points are actually quite true! The freshness of this little Nuwara Eliya Ceylon tea is noticeable, it just smells so fresh!
As the drink is BRUUing;
The colour is so gentle as it comes through, yet you know it will pack a punch. This loose leaf tea has been manufactured using the traditional orthodox technique practiced in Sri Lanka for 150 years. The method calls for a short fermentation that preserves the quality and delicate flavours of the tea.
The taste journey;
Stunning. Taste like nothing you have tried before, so fresh, so versatile. Drink it with or without milk, it isn't going matter, this tea can take it all. It's slightly stronger than our Pedro OP, so great for those that like a stronger tea.
About the tea region;
Lovers Leap teas are high-grown at 5,700 feet above sea level. The plantation has an interesting history, dating back to the very early days when tea was first introduced as a commercial crop in Ceylon. Lover’s Leap was the only tea plantation owned by the Ceylon tea pioneer, Scotsman James Taylor. Today we offer you this exquisite tea, made in the same plantation where the story of Ceylon tea began all those years ago.
Lover's Leap is named after the tragic legend of two young lovers who leapt from the top of a picturesque waterfall on the estate. The garden is located in an area of outstanding beauty, where the crisp mountain air carries the fragrance of abundant cypress groves, eucalyptus and wild mint.
With this tea, you are not only tasting a great brew but also indulging in the history of Ceylon tea.
