Everybody knows you’ll find tea in all Irish and British homes. Whether you actually drink tea yourself or not, it’s important to have some in the kitchen cupboard just in case somebody comes to visit. Usually the second thing out of a host’s mouth, after “Hello”, is “Would you like a cuppa?”
Most people are more than happy to be handed a cup of some well-known blended tea like Lyons, Barry’s or Yorkshire Tea. But many true lovers of tea prefer the more refined enjoyment that can come from drinking a cup made from just a single variety of tea leaf. That’s why at Dalriata, we are pleased to offer a range of fine premium from teas from Taylor’s of Harrogate. In this case, it’s grown on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. If you like your tea light, golden and fresh, this Ceylon tea might be just what you’re looking for.
You may already be familiar with the name Taylor’s of Harrogate. They’re the renowned manufacturers of Yorkshire Tea, one of the UK’s favourites. Having been in business for over 130 years, their reputation for quality teas is well-earned. They select the finest teas, and blend them carefully to work with different types of water. This Ceylon tea uses only the very best leaves.
Ceylon tea comes from the Western Highlands of Sri Lanka. High in the hills near the centre of the island are many world-famous tea plantations. The hot, dry climate of this region gives Ceylon tea a unique flavour quite unlike the heavy, malty tones and earthy colour you’ll find in Assam tea. These leaves produce a wonderfully light and fresh flavour with citrus notes, and a beautiful golden hue.
If you find typical Irish and British tea blends a little heavy, Taylor’s of Harrogate’s Ceylon Tea might be more to your liking. The delightfully designed box contains 20 tea bags, each one individually wrapped in a paper sleeve to keep them fresh. They also have their own a drawstring and a tag, so they’re perfect for for making a single cup at a time, as well as working great in a teapot.
