Pure Ceylon black tea | Loose leaf
Udu Pussallawa Region | Broken Orange Pekoe One (BOP1)
This medium grown blend is malty, fresh, slightly tart, and strong. For this Broken Orange Pekoe One (BOP1) grade tea we use a wiry, medium-length leaf that provides this blend its malty flavor. 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 recognized for its bright infusion and coppery tone. Although appearing light in the cup (dark gold) Royal Midlands offers strength and body for a flavorful tasting experience.
