Harvested in the early morning hours when each leaf glistens with dew, this 100% pure Ceylon tea is slightly astringent with a subtle sweetness. Each sip of this black tea reveals the passion of the people who carefully hand pluck each of its leaves. We have continued our commitment to fostering our relationship with the Bogawantalawa Tea Estate community through the construction of a day care center, library, and community center on the tea estate.
Origin: Central Dimbula Region, Sri Lanka
Begin with fresh, bottled or filtered water. Bring the water just to a boil. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 oz cup of water into a teapot or infuser or place one tea bag directly into a 12 to 16oz cup. Pour water directly over the tea leaves or tea bag. Note that over-steeped tea will become bitter. For stronger tea add more leaves rather than infusing longer than recommended.
