Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka
Lover's Leap is the most famous of all Sri Lankan teas. This unique, intense Ceylon is harvested during the dry season in January and February, when the lack of rain concentrates the flavour in the leaves. It makes a beautifully bright amber infusion with fresh, floral and lemony notes.
Ingredients: 100% black tea leaves. To store, just reseal the pack and keep it in the cupboard. Blended and packed in the UK by Taylors of Harrogate, HG2 7LD.

Pedro Tea Estate, Nuwara Elliya, Central Province, Sri Lanka
Black, with milk or with lemon - or iced with fresh fruit
Pedro Tea Estate has been producing teas for us for over 15 years, for both blends and single estate teas. So one of our senior tea experts, Suzy Garraghan, developed this special Lover's Leap tea in collaboration with Pedro Tea Estate. Hand plucked, lightly oxidised and rolled using the traditional orthodox method with extra fine sorting, it showcases the peak of their craft.
We often include Pedro Tea Estate on our trip itinerary, as it produces some of Sri Lanka’s finest speciality tea. The road from the capital, Colombo, to the hilltop station of Nuwara Elliya is long and windy, but the misty views are breathtaking.
