This is a classic tea that never fails to disappoint. in your cup you find a distinctive tea that has a long and interesting history. This is what Atkinson’s say about their Ceylon Tea;
A good old reliable and satisfying everyday cuppa from the ‘Island of Tea’. The Ceylon ‘Broken Orange Pekoe’ is full-flavoured and full of character. ‘B’ is for broken, the size of the leaf. ‘O’ is for Orange, the Royal Dutch House that first terraced and planted this island with coffee, later to be transformed into tea by the English when the blight wiped out all the coffee in 1878… and ‘P’ is for Pekoe – Chinese for the light hairy down on the skin of a new-born infant, similar to the white bloom on the underside of the tea leaf.
