Origin

Lumbini Tea Estate, Ruhuna Region, Sri Lanka (Ceylon)

Orange Pekoe is one of the most loved terms in the tea trade. Contrary to popular belief, it has nothing to do with the color or flavor orange. Orange Pekoe is the basis of grading tea leaves according to their size and position on the tea branch. This grading system is especially used in the countries of India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia and Kenya.

Lowland Tea

Unlike other tea growing regions in the world, many of the best teas in Sri Lanka are grown in the lowlands near the coast. Topographically, this tea is grown in a virtual crucible fostering quick growth and lush full leaves and tips.

Lumbini Tea Estate

Grown at the reputed Lumbini tea estate which is in close proximity to the Sinharaja forest reserve. Lumbini is recipient of several awards and merits - Special Merit Award for The Best Tea Factory in Sri Lanka and Gold Award for the Orange Pekoe 1 (OP1) by The Specialty Tea Institute of USA.

Flavor Profile

A light bodied tea with balanced sweetness and astringency. Aromas of turbinado and warm brown sugar.

The Tao of Tea

Since 1997, we have aspired to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts that travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.

Suggested Use

Brewing

Use one and half teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces filtered water at 185 F and steep for four minutes.

Black tea leaves.

My personal favorite from Tao of Tea

Posted by rawpotential on Oct 23, 2014 | Verified Purchase

And believe me I've tried most of their unflavored teas. This makes the sweetest, most luscious cup of black tea I've had without adding sugar or fruit flavors. Let it steep in a glass cup and watch the amber stuff ooze down like ropes of honey...
