Premium Ceylon tea

Certified Origin

Sri Lankan flag denoting that one or more ingredients are ethically sourced from Sri Lanka.


Start by filling both a filtered teapot and the cups you plan on using halfway with hot water to preheat them, which helps slow down the cooling of the tea.

Empty out the water and add your choice of Ceylon tea leaves to the teapot.

It’s generally recommended to use about 1 teaspoon (2.5 grams) of tea leaves per 237 ml (8 oz) of water.

Fill the teapot with hot, but not boiling water – 90–96ºC (194–205ºF) and cover with the lid.

Finally, allow the tea leaves to steep for approximately three minutes before pouring into cups and serving. The longer you steep the tea, the strong the taste and the caffeine.
