Lumbini OP1
Black tea, Sri Lanka

Flavour: forest wood, spice, malt, hints of honey
In the highest valley in Southern Sri Lanka, surrounded by 25,000 hectares of virgin rainforest, lies the Lumbini Tea Valley. Nestled in its pristine environment, Lumbini’s focus on sustainable tea practices as well as its artisan craftmanship means some of the best teas in Sri Lanka come from this tea garden.

This is one of Lumbini’s top black teas. A full-bodied, well-structured, tannic tea with notes of malt, pepper spice and cedar wood and a hint of honey. We recommend you experience this tea’s full flavour profile by drinking it alone but if you choose to add milk, steep for 5 minutes.

October 2019 harvest.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 90°. Two infusions.
