Lovers Leap (Orange Pekoe)

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.

My absolute favorite black tea

This tea is delicious. I switched from coffee to tea in the mornings and after starting my day with this well-balanced tea for the past few months, I find coffee too sour. This tea is somehow both delicate and substantial. I prefer with agave nectar and a splash of milk, but it really doesn't need it.

The tea is great shipping took a week

I’ve ordered from the whistling kettle before and LOVE all the tea I’ve tried. Usually I receive my tea in 2 days. This time I received the email that it had shipped (with a tracking number that didn’t work) and then my tea showed up a week later. I’m just glad it came.

I want to give this a try iced

To be honest, I'm not crazy about this hot. I'd like to try it as an iced tea as it seems it might hold up well to being served cold.

Good quality

I made this as an iced tea and it worked out nicely. I can tell the tea is fresh. The only thing is the package says “TSP to 8oz of water.” This is confusing because usually a teaspoon is abbreviated in lowercase. I used tablespoon since sometimes the uppercase abb. can be interpreted as tablespoon and it turned out too strong. After the fact I saw on their website it’s states “teaspoon.” Not located on the bag anywhere.
