Ceylon Breakfast

+

Pure black tea with brisk and bold flavors

Brisk and robust with a light astringency and lingering finish, Ceylon Breakfast packs a flavorful punch and promises to kickstart your day. Wonderfully rounded off with honey or milk.

Contents: Loose leaf Broken Orange Pekoe (black tea)

Origin: Uva, Sri Lanka

Tasting Notes: Malty, brisk, strong

Harvest: May 2019

It was with tea grown and manufactured on his Uva tea estates that Sir Thomas Lipton (yes, that Lipton) first persuaded Americans to take up the habit of drinking tea. Since then, the mist-shrouded Uva highlands of Sri Lanka have become home to some of the finest teas on the “teardrop island.”

Nestled in the country’s southeastern corner amidst gushing waterfalls and lush jungles, Uva Province produces 20 percent of Sri Lanka’s annual crop. The best of which, like our Ceylon Breakfast, are characterized by full-bodied aromas reminiscent of sweet berries and a vibrant copper hue. The memorable flavors of the tea owe their complexity to the area’s high altitude and thin mountain air which helps to slow the maturation of the tea leaves.

Similar in taste to a classic English Breakfast, our Ceylon Breakfast consists of Broken Orange Pekoe leaves and is made using a mini tea-roller that was custom-built from wood from the Kithul tree for our Sri Lankan tea growers' small-scale production.

Made of two leaves and a bud, the strong, single-origin brew is the perfect start to any morning and is ideal for those who like to drink their tea with milk or honey.

Gachi Grower Sri Lanka Ceylon Breakfast

Ceylon Breakfast is grown, picked and hand-crafted on a bio-organic tea garden in the highlands of Sri Lanka’s Uva Province. Nestled among waterfalls and lush jungles, the small, community-focused farm is dedicated to producing quality teas through ethical, sustainable practices.

Workers here are not just a part of a factory-line process – which is often the case with most Sri Lankan tea estates – but are empowered in their craft. In addition to learning the stages of the tea-making process, workers are instructed how to keep records about the upkeep and crafting of the teas. They earn a percentage of the estate's revenues in addition to their wages, while another portion of the farm's revenues is reserved for community-building initiatives.

Our partner growers also emphasize environmental sustainability by using strict, all-natural growing methods. No chemicals, artificial fertilizers or pesticides are used on the farm. Rather, our partner growers utilize their own compost, organic sprays and manure from their rescue cows.

Because of our partner grower’s unique approach, their workers enjoy long-term, rewarding employment, and their Ceylon teas are of unprecedented quality and innovation.
