Ceylon Lumbini FBOPF
A velvety light tobacco and fruit note opens with this black tea. Small tight black leaves are mixed with beautiful silver tips. The cuppa is deep red and is great for a morning pick-me-up. I love how the fruit note lingers and blends so nicely with the tannins.

This silver tipped black tea is a low-grown tea in Ceylon. Apple notes highlight this robust Ceylon black tea. Its attractive, showy contrast of silver against black makes it a popular gift tea at weddings, even outside Sri Lanka (SE Asia, Middle East). There aren’t many Ceylon Blacks that have so much silvery sprouts, yet there is little astringency. This tea shines without milk or sugar with its velvety, long round finish. Of course it is important for you to like tea “your” way. If milk is your preferred condiment, go for it.
Interesting Tea Trivia:
This Ceylon signature tea shows silver tips, whereas tippy teas from China show up as golden/coppery colored leaves.
