Lovers Leap Ceylon
This single source tea from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) received its name because situated on the estate is a cliff where lovers would throw themselves over if they were jilted or they were not allowed to marry one another. Those days are thankfully gone, but what remains is a medium bodied black tea with a lively astringency. We love this tea because it makes a great pure black iced tea and great with a lemon wedge.

Country of Origin
This is one of my favorite teas to make ice tea with. I have stopped buying ice tea at coffee shops because my husband and I love this tea.
Great for Iced Tea!
My wife knows I love tea, and bought this one on a recommendation from the staff for those who enjoy their tea iced. I love this one and have bought more many times. I used to go to store to resupply, but found the web site far better (free shipping if you buy enough) although the Troy location is great to visit, just a little out of my way. I suppose I should try different kinds, but I like this one so much, I'm sticking to it.
I like my orange pekoe style teas. I tried this one, and I was impressed by the higher flavor it has if compared with prebagged tea. If you like black tea, I am sure that you will find this one to be particularly pleasing.
