Ceylon 'Lovers Leap' Broken Orange Pekoe

Lovely flowery medium strength daily tea but leaves are too finely ground and didn't look like the picture so disappointing as I prefer a bigger leaf

Ceylon 'Lovers Leap' Broken Orange Pekoe

This is a wonderful tea with decent strength. It has become my go-to-brew and has replaced most of the English Breakfast blends in the rotation.
