Our Organic Fairtrade Ceylon Broken Orange Pekoe is of a smaller leaf size which allows for a much deeper infusion and therefore better taste. The increased surface area of the leaves allows for much more of the tea's flavour compounds to be released which really makes the difference between a ï¿½goodï¿½ tea and a ï¿½greatï¿½ one.
Grown in Sri Lanka, which was formally known as Ceylon, Ceylon tea is a relatively new crop, having only properly taken off in the mid-1800s, but it has rapidly become a highly prized tea due to its rich aroma, unforgettable taste and also its health benefits.
Ceylon tea contains thearubigins and theaflavins, which may sound confusing, but all they actually are are powerful antioxidants. This delightful tea is also anti-viral and anti-bacterial, making it not only a great beverage but a pretty handy medicine!
Buying Fairtrade tea ensures all produce has been ethically, properly and organically grown, harvested and packaged, and all local farmers get the best price for their hard work.
