Ruhuna Highland Estate OP Tea -2lb Bookmark and Share

"Ceylon's rugged central mountains are home to the incomparable Ruhuna Estate, in the cool clouds at 2,500 feet above the Indian Ocean. Here the tea leaves grow very slowly, producing teas of intense fragrance and flavor. The rare ""O.P."" grade, the abbreviation for ""Orange Pekoe"" (contrary to common thought, having no reference to the taste of orange, they are instead anglicized words taken from the 17th century Chinese tea trade) denotes the cherished largest pieces of leaf. This fine Xanadu tea creates an extraordinary golden-colored cup that is perfect as an afternoon or evening tea. Strongly flavored, with a pleasantly assertive quality, this tea may be enjoyed black, or with a splash of milk for extra richness."
