Ahmad Ceylon Tea
20 foil wrapped tea bags; Net weight: 1.4oz/40g
Our Ceylon is a fine example of one of the world’s most popular teas. Well balanced, with a brisk and lively flavour, it makes an energising cuppa any time of the day.
Ceylon tea comes from Sri Lanka (‘Ceylon’ is the old colonial name for the country), a hilly island famed for its diverse tea regions. Our Tea Masters blend teas from different areas. ‘Low-grown’ teas, harvested from sunny tea gardens below 600 metres (m) in altitude, give colour and strength. We balance these with medium-grown teas, sourced from gardens between 600 and 1,200m high. These cooler sites produce lighter teas, which give the blend its lively, citrusy edge.
Deep golden when brewed, our Ceylon Tea has a fresh aroma and zesty flavours. A versatile tea, try it served with a slice of lemon as a reviving cuppa, or brewed strong and softened with a splash of milk. Our Ceylon also makes an excellent iced tea, steeped with lemon and sugar and diluted with iced water, the perfect foil for hot summer days.
