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.

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.

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.
