Pure Ceylon Black tea (BOP 1)

Loose leaf · From Udu Pussallawa region · Good for Iced tea

This medium grown blend is malty, fresh, slightly tart, and strong. For this Broken Orange Pekoe One (BOP 1) grade tea, we use a wiry, medium-length leaf that provides this blend its malty flavour. The leaves are plucked from our plantations in the small town of Pussallawa in the Kandy District, the ancient capital of Sri Lankan royalty. Pussallawa is situated at 2,000-4,000ft above sea level and is today known for its mid-grown teas recognised for its bright infusion and coppery tone. Although appearing light in the cup (dark gold) Royal Midlands offers strength and body for a flavourful tasting experience.

Best tea ever!

I recently switched to morning tea from coffee. I must say I love this tea! It is both rich and full bodied, but is low in tannins so has a very smooth finish. I have this every day now! Try it. You won’t regret it!

Colonial Mornings - excellent choice!

I was fully satisfied after first session with this stunning tea from Dimbulla region. It was my first experience with Teakruthi but I have been so impressed by your Colonial Mornings tea that had made next order promptly to try more of your Teakruthi teas.

A brisk yet sweet morning tea!

Thanks so much for the samples, Teakruthi!  Honestly, personally I usually consider Ceylon to be the most boring of black teas... sometimes they just taste like cardboard to me... so a tea shop focusing on Ceylon didn't sound great in my opinion.  BUT I'M WRONG.  These are unique Ceylon teas... completely disproves my Ceylon tea stereotypes. This plain black Ceylon tastes nothing like those poor quality Ceylon teas I've had in the past.  The quality obviously depends on many things.  Teakruthi is quality. A Twinings Ceylon is going to be very very different.   I really like this one.The dry leaves are about half an inch long, dusty black with hints of pink.  The fragrance of the dry leaves reminded me of a spicy tomato sauce... I had been thinking of pizza all day.  Hmm.  But the flavor wasn't too much like a spicy pizza sauce.  I noticed almond, which is interesting because Teakruthi also mentions almond.  I like being reassured that someone (anyone?) is on the same page I am, when it comes to flavor notes.  There is a definitely a sweetness here.  Strong enough with a teaspoon and a half.  The "morning" in the name is accurate - this is a fantastic flavor profile for a morning tea.   Steep sessions can range from reminding me of a brisk Assam, to sometimes tasting like a Ruby varietal. I do love a good Ruby tea, so this tea is certainly many steps above the usual boring tastes-like-nothing-to-me Ceylon.  The second steep was a little bitter and I wouldn't try steeping it so hot and so long again.  That's my fault.  The first steep was delectable.  During another steep session, the second steep was just fine after waiting 3-4 minutes after boiling.  Thank you Teakruthi, for solidly proving to me that not all tea grown in the same place can fall under the same quality.  Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 15 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep
