6th December Tea
A high altitude black grown 8000ft up on the renowned Sri Lankan Nuwara Eliya tea estate.
How our drink hits the senses:
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU;
Even before it's BRUUed you'll know this is going to be such a mellow black tea. Smooth smelling yet stimulating signs of a slight astringent side to the drink. Always a delight to smell a dry BOP (broken orange pekoe leaf).
As the drink is BRUUing;
An initial mellow / earthy aroma as the black leaf begin to dye the water a gorgeous copper colour. There is something unique and mysterious about a quality black leaf tea smell and taste.
The taste journey;
The broken leaves have much more surface area which increases the taste. Enjoy the subtle sweet tang rousing your tongue but with such grace and depth.

The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things.
Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveler back to his own fireside and quiet home!
