Sri Lanka's beautiful landscape is reflected in this tea from the mountains. A classic variety with an elegant, medium-bodied and partially fruity character. If you like black tea, you like Ceylon.
This black tea comes from Ceylon which is the new old on the island of Sri Lanka. There are many classifications and editions of teas from Ceylon. This is an Orange Pekoe (OP), harvested only from one farm (sigle estate).
Black tea is fully oxidized. That is, the oxidation process is allowed to stop on its own. After oxidation, the tea is dried. It is oxidation that makes the tea leaves dark. Black tea has a strong, often earthy taste and is the most common type drunk in the Western world. Most people prefer to drink black tea with milk, but high-quality teas like this are also lovely on their own.
An organic product is produced in a way that takes the environment into account by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides. It's good for the planet, but also for the tea, the farmer and you. By buying organic teas, you support healthy and long-term tea production.
We are proud to be the largest Norwegian brand importer of organic tea. To be approved by Debio and use the definition Organic, not only must the ingredients be certified organic, but our own plant must also be certified by Debio and controlled by Mattsilynet.
In addition to import controls from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, we go beyond the requirements by also taking random samples for pesticides/pesticides and other pollutants.
It is important that tea is stored protected from air and light. That's why we sell all our teas packed in tight aluminum bags with a zip lock.
