Elmwood Inn Fine Teas owner Bruce Richardson recently visited the Lovers' Leap Tea Estate in Sri Lanka and fell in love with this tea garden. This is a classic orange pekoe grade Ceylon black tea that is great all day long. Very smooth.

By now you know that the tea grade Orange Pekoe has nothing to do with citrus fruit. If not, order a copy of the reference book used by more tea purveryors internationally, The New Tea Companion by Bruce Richardson and Jane Pettigrew.
