Lumbini Pekoe
Black tea, Sri Lanka

Flavour: malt, pepper, cedar ~ brisk & full-bodied
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.

Grown 400m above sea level, this is Lumbini’s ‘pekoe’ grade of black tea. Watch the rolled leaves unfurl as they steep and smell their sweet, malty and nutty fragrance. The leaves infuse into a full bodied, well-structured, tannic tea with notes of malt, pepper spice and cedar. Great for pairing with rich dishes such as red meat and sweet deserts.

Preparation: Steep for 2 - 4 minutes at 100°. Two + infusions.
