Ceylon Smoke is our savory Sri Lankan version of a Chinese lapsang souchong — a smoked black tea. The tea is hand-picked outside the Sinharaja rainforest by artisan teamakers, then heavily smoked with freshly harvested cinnamon sticks. Its taste and aroma is reminiscent of a crackling campfire with a hint of cinnamon. You won't find it anywhere else!
Amount: 2 grams of loose tea per cup of water (a pinch)
Temperature: 212 ̊ (A full, rolling boil)
Steep time: 1 - 2 minutes
About Our Sri Lankan Tea
Formerly called Ceylon, the island of Sri Lanka has produced some of the finest tea in the world for the last 150 years. While the tea industry survived Sri Lanka’s 30-year-long civil war intact, it has also bolstered the entire country’s continued economic recovery since the war's end in 2009.
