Pure Ceylon Black tea (BOP1)
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 (BOP1) 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.

Give the grocery store black tea the boot
This was a clean tasting beautiful color black tea. I am more of an iced tea drinker, but this is delightful for hot as well. I warmed it up later and it was almost as good as fresh.
