Pure Ceylon Black tea, Broken Orange Pekoe One (BOP1)
Loose leaf · From Ruhuna (a.k.a. Southern or Matara) region
This low grown tea has been hand-plucked from the southern part of Sri Lanka, where the unique composition of the soil makes it particularly special in taste and colour. This blend is considered one of the finest broken teas. This tea's rare, refined quality has made this tea a favourite in Russia and Germany. So, what makes our Southern Malt so special? This is a full-bodied tea has a malty, fresh flavour, unlike any other tea. The southern soil of Sri Lanka nourished the leaves and gave them their black colour and brought strength to the cup. Its beautiful copper colour mirrors its taste in richness.

Smooth full bodied tea. Weill probably drink for the rest of my life.
I bought this as a birthday present for my dad. Both of us loved the tea a lot. Well done, teakruthi team.
I really enjoyed this tea reminding me of a visit to Sri Lanka last year where we visited a tea plantation. I like most teas but my preference is now Ceylon.
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!
Thanks again for the samples, Teakruthi! A fantastic robust black tea here. The leaves look unique to me -- they remind me of the pelt of some feral wood creature for some reason. Dark, wiry, short leaves with touches of gold. It somehow just appears slightly different than a usual black tea! The flavor is like the image. Robust, tough, strong, wild, but also malty with touches of sweetness and a bit of starch. Reminds me of leather somehow, in the best way and dark dried fruits. It's so mysterious yet the flavor notes really meld together well. So drinkable and comforting. A black tea I'd give an award to. Tough to describe the details, but simply perfection on that first steep today. I did start drinking this in the morning and it makes a great morning OR afternoon tea. The second steep wasn't as special with either steep session. The first session, I didn't brew it at boiling like I normally would for the second steep of a black tea. But the second session was more like how I'd brew a second steep and it was a little bit brisk, with the characteristics mostly of a drying coppery assam. Both first steeps were FANTASTIC though. With adjustments, I can probably make the second steeps just as good. This is exactly what I look for a strong black tea and I will certainly stock up.
