This outstanding example of an Orange Pekoe grade Ceylon tea has been sourced from the Kenilworth Estate in the western Sri Lankan hills. Named after Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire, the estate is renowned for its traditionally mature style of Ceylon, characterised by an attractively long, unbroken leaf and subtle oaky tones to the cup.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Origin: Sri Lanka
Coffee plantations were originally Sri Lanka's main economic resource, and it wasn't until the 1870s that a sudden blight devastated the coffee plantations and allowed tea to take centre stage. Today, "Ceylon" tea – known by the country's former colonial name – is famed for its clean, brisk taste.
A Near-Perfect Origin
At altitudes of up to 4,000 feet, the 700-acre Kenilworth Estate profits from the fresh climate and seasonal monsoons of the hills. The best tender leaves are picked after the first monsoon and processed during the cooler weather, allowing the tea to develop its famously smooth, almost creamy texture – you'll taste none of the astringency sometimes associated with Ceylon tea. Indeed, Kenilworth holds the record for the highest price ever paid at auction for its Orange Pekoe grade tea – clear, complex and refreshingly sweet, it's not hard to see why.
