Tea Profile

Ingredients: 100% Ceylon Tea

Classic Ceylon tea, also known as Orange Pekoe, this classic legacy tea is obtained from the tea district in the mountains of Sri Lanka. This fine tea can be served with milk and sugar.


Origin: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon produces mainly black, or fully oxidized teas. The island nation of Sri Lanka is small, but she benefits from a perfect geography with an enviable microclimate that produces a complex set of temperature, moisture and wind, so the flavours and character of the teas produced vary greatly. Roleaf’s Black Tea is sourced from Nuwara Eliya, the best-known of Sri Lanka’s tea-growing districts. It is the most mountainous, and has the highest average elevation. Combined with low temperature, this region produces very exquisite teas.

Some of our black teas are from the remote Uva district which is exposed to the winds of both northeast and southwest monsoons. The climate produces tea with a special, distinct character and exotically aromatic flavour. The mellow, smooth taste of Uva tea is easily distinguished.

Most black tea from Sri Lanka is orthodox tea, meaning it was processed by hand. Brisk and bright, it is rich with a unique crisp citrus aroma and goodness uniquely formed by the varying terroir of Sri Lanka’s tea-growing regions.
