The Lover’s Leap Ceylon black tea is a top grade Nuwara Eliya estate tea grown at the altitude of 8000 feet above sea level on steep hills. This tea is a true Orange Pekoe grade. Orange Pekoe stands for whole leaf. When you pour boiling water on this tea you will see how the leaf uncurls and expands quite dramatically, a process called the agony of the leaf. When brewed this tea produces a bright coppery color liquid with a medium body piquant and refreshing taste.
Lover’s Leap, a western tea estate, is one of the best tea gardens in Sri Lanka.
