Lovers Leap Ceylon

Black Tea

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.

Lovely Morning Tea

I'm a black tea lover and this one really hits the spot in the mornings when I first get up. I drink only hot tea, but I'm sure iced tea lovers would like this one for a cold drink. I'll continue to purchase this along with my favorite, Snowflake Tea.

I LOVE Lover's Leap!

This is a wonderful tea that is bright and has a "bite" to it. I live in south-east Texas, so I definitely drink it iced. Don't over-make (you should make small batch fresh daily) because it will cloud in the fridge. Tastes the same, but looks less desirable.

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 iced

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.
