A delightful black tea handpicked by the BRUU team during a visit to Sri Lanka. It's light, full leaf, delicate, yet 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;
A much fuller leaf than our Pedro BOP, so you know that it is going to be a well-rounded flavour. You just know that those lovely little leaves are going to unroll and do amazing things. Oh, and it smells divine - like it was picked yesterday!
As the drink is BRUUing;
A really light cup but teaming with flavour. 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;
One of the BRUU team favourites. It is so light yet full of flavour. Best served without milk and with a touch of sugar - which is how the estate owner served it to the BRUU team. It tastes like that time when someone made you a REALLY great cup of 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.
