Ceylon Lover's Leap Estate OP
Tasting Notes: stone fruit, citrus, earthiness
Description: A high elevation grown Ceylon tea that is a lively and light-bodied black tea. Similar to high elevation grown First Flush Darjeeling teas, this Ceylon tea is best drunk straight up without milk. Subtle notes of apricot and peach mingle with citrus, earthiness, and a touch of cinnamon. A pleasant dry mouth astringency lingers.
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, has been providing excellent teas since the mid 1800's. Sri Lanka is now one of the largest tea producing countries in the world.
Lover's Leap Estate is located in the mountainous Nuwara Eliya tea region of Sri Lanka. This famous estate is named due to a cliff on the property where lovers would throw themselves off if they were jilted or weren't allowed to marry whom they choose. This famous tea estate is approximately 6,000 feet above sea level where the high elevation mountains, dry weather, warm sunny days, and cool nights create the flavors in this cup of tea. This particular Lover's Leap tea is harvested in the spring season.
