Our certified Organic Harrington Estate OP is a single-estate black tea that is full-bodied and brisk. It is rounded and smooth with comforting notes of wood and malt that leaves a creamy feeling in the mouth.
This is a wonderful mark of a mid-grown Ceylon tea and makes an excellent choice for a breakfast or afternoon tea.
Origin: Kotagala, Dimbula, Sri Lanka
Flavour profile: Full-bodied | Woodsy | Malt
Processing highlights: Whilst many Sri Lankan tea estates use machinery to pluck the tea leaves Harrington Estate still value the skilled workers who pluck the budset by hand. We believe this care and attention in processing the tea creates the finest qualities in taste and aroma.
Harvest: September 2019
The Dimbula region is located in the southwest of Sri Lanka with most tea estates situated above 1,200m. The region benefits from both monsoonal and very dry conditions that contribute to the unique and complex flavour.
Organic Harrington Estate OP tea is a full-bodied black tea with delicate woodsy and floral notes with the characteristic malty flavour. This tea leaves a rounded fullness on the palate.
Our Organic Harrington Estate will pair well with most meats (beef, lamb and chicken) and spicy foods. Ceylon teas make particularly good breakfast or afternoon teas and pair well with eggs and cured meats.
