Ceylon OP (Orange Pekoe)
$5.00 – $20.00
SOLD BY THE OUNCE
ORIGIN: Ceylon (Sri Lanka)
DESCRIPTION: Classic quality coming from the famous island, situated in the Golf of Bengal, a decaffeinated Ceylon OP. The leaf anthracite-colored, long and wiry, mild and yet tender in taste, with a copper-colored cup.
DECAFFEINATION PROCESS: The tea is produced under the CO2 high pressure decaffeination method, one of the most modern technologies existing so far. It is a cycle process whereby the caffeine is selectively removed from the extracted product. The suitable selection of processing conditions (i.e. pressure, temperature) leads to a very smooth and safe decaffeinated quality. Slight losses of raw material, a better flavor and full color are the most significant details of a CO2-decaffeinated tea. Carbon dioxide is a natural part of the air and physically harmless. It protects from oxidation and prevents undesirable smells and tastes.
