An amazing black tea with a special BRUU story. It is a masterpiece created by Sri Lanka's number one tea taster!
In January 2018 the BRUU team got a special invitation by the Sri Lankan Tea Association to visit one of its premier tea estates run by Sri Lanka's number one tea taster Eranga. Even better, they allowed us to fly the tea immediately back to the UK to guarantee freshness. Usually, in Sri Lanka, all tea has to go through auctions, which can add months between the time it is picked and when it ends up in your cup.
How our drink hits the senses:
Whilst sitting dry in its container waiting to become your BRUU;
It has a gentle aroma, yet with a punch. The leaves feel well cared for, you just know this one is going to be a winner.
As the drink is BRUUing;
A refreshing smell, unlike your traditional black, it has a light aroma, it isn't trying to overpower itself, almost closer to a light Oolong.....but wait, here it comes, after a few minutes that leaves uncurl and wow, flavour hits the senses!
The taste journey;
We love this tea, it is so luxurious. You won't want to add milk to this, it already has a creamy profile owing to the cooler region it is grown in. It's naturally sweet and packed with character.
