Pure Ceylon Black tea (BOP 1)
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.

Copper colour, nutty flavour
I had few last grams of this tea. So, I put it into strainer, used approx. 95 °C water and poured into glass mug. How awesome seeing changing colour and in four minutes I took strainer out. The colour was shiny copper colour, full of reflections! It looked just great. Smell was amazing, at first some burnt wood, changing to roasted nuts. Then some malt appeared. I have ***** it plain (as I always do), so I can describe flavour quite well. Smooth, roasted nuts flavour, quite sweet (but not sugary sweet). Bit spicy as well (Nicholas mentioned it below, and I have to agree). I am afraid I need more :) - it is expectational tea for easy afternoon and evening drinking!
Exceptionally Rich, Sweet, and Flavorful
This remarkable tea is a standout among other "malty" offerings. Breakfast teas (and Assams) are traditionally described as malty, but they are also brisk/astringent. This one has all the malt flavors but is smooth and sweet. A distinct raisin note soars through the middle followed by an aftertaste of dark honey. I can taste some spice flavors in there as well... saffron comes to mind. Brewed as directed, the result is a full, rich, delicious cup of tea.
