Aroma Ceylon Kandy B. O. P.
Ceylon tea is from Sri Lanka an island off the southeast of Indian. Tea from this area is bright in colour and produces a crisp, subtle taste although slightly stronger than dimbula. This grade is the fine leaf which doesn’t take as long brew giving strong colour quickly. Because of the island’s geographical position and climate, tea can be harvested throughout the year.
The teas from this area have retained the name “Ceylon”, even though the traditional name of Sri Lanka was readopted in 1972. The majority of Ceylon Tea is used when blending teas for general use. Kandy is a major city located in the central province of Sri Lanka, is the central place for religious worship in the Buddhist faith. This district produces slightly stronger tea than its neighbour dimbula because of its history with the East India Trading Company and their experimenting with Assam plants in different locations.
