Leaf Natural Tea

When making Natural tea, the leaf is fed into the top of the tea dryer, shifted back and forth along the length of the drying bed and exited beneath the "dryer mouth" of the tea dryer.

Natural tea - The leaf stock used is plucked from a special sub-genus of Camellia Sinensis that peaks in flavor during February. Finished tea is made by halting production half way through the CTC cycle, (Cut Tear & Curl), as leaf comes out of the dryer. The resulting cup is wonderfully rich, raw and flavory, typically with deep notes of sweet malt - an innovative development in African tea.

Unlike most single estate loose leaf teas, Natural Tea is produced and shipped in an un-graded state. As such a typical Natural Tea is comprised of every grade normally produced by the Estate. This might range from the intense robust Dust grades right up to the more mildly flavored Pekoe grades. The subsequent blending of leaf character, all from one Estate origin, produces a cup that is rich, exceptionally rounded and tasteful.

Natural Teas are grown on Estates that use no herbicides or pesticides.
All are FairTrade except for the Ceylon Black Dryer Mouth Pedro Estate
