Ceylon Kenilworth Tea is an outstanding example of a Ceylon tea, deliciously smooth and mature.
Ceylon was the original colonial name of Sri Lanka and although the island changed its name in 1972, the teas kept their historic name. The taste of Ceylon tea is largely defined by the altitude at which the tea is grown. Ceylon Kenilworth is a high grown tea, from the renowned Kenilworth Estate in the Sri Lankan hills. Established by an English pioneer, it takes its name from Kenilworth Castle in Warwickshire. Its large twists of lovely long black leaf are rare for the altitude, and give the tea its distinctive, oaky flavour.
Ceylon Kenilworth is a classic orange pekoe tea that makes a delightfully refreshing drink, perfect for afternoon tea.
