An amazing black tea with a special BRUU story. It is a masterpiece created by Sri Lanka's number one tea taster! 


The story...
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.

What it is?
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 but not this one, we flew the tea immediately back to the UK to guarantee freshness. It is a masterpiece created by Sri Lanka's number one tea taster! 

Why we love it
A blend from the higher and lower regions of Ceylon delivering a light, refreshing flavour with real body.

Where it’s from
Talawakelle Tea Estates PLC produces the best of high-quality Ceylon Teas in Sri Lanka. The estate is managed by Eranga Edodawella, awarded the Best Tea Taster in Sri Lanka. The plantation strategically plants trees around the tea bushes to cast timed shadows each day.

How our drink hits the senses
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. 

Best enjoyed;
1tsp // 100°C // 2-3 mins
