Ceylon Silver Striped is a low-country tea from Ratnapura. It is made with a lot of leaf tips, giving it a smooth refined flavor. In terms of a leaf grade, this is a FBOPF-Extra Special.
Unlike other tea-growing regions in the world, many of the best teas in Sri Lanka are grown in the lowlands near the coast. Topographically, this tea is grown in a virtual crucible, fostering quick growth and lush, full leaves and tips.
Orthodox Manufacture refers to teas which are hand-plucked and processed in smaller quantities, and which are closely watched to maintain predominantly full, unbroken leaf. Ceylon Silver Stripe is an orthodox tea produced from young leaf and tip bud, lightly withered and carefully rolled in a special wooden base tea roller to maintain the leaf’s consistent color and shape. During processing, the edges of each leaf and bud curl inward, revealing the slender mid-vein of the leaf, which has turned a bright white-silver color.
We offer a wide variety of specialty teas as well herbs and blends, and our focus has always been on sourcing the best tea leaves (camellia sinensis) possible. Similar to grapes, tea plants have many regions, varietals, processing methods, and seasons. We as merchants are particular in working with growers to secure exceptional-tasting leaf each season, as good tea sells out very quickly and is seldom made in large quantities. We pledge to share teas made with artistry and skill, and to help educate on tea origins, processing methods, flavor vocabulary, and spirit.
Care for the soil and tea plants must be coupled with recognition and sustainability of surrounding ecosystems. The genesis of tea plants was in naturally occurring tea forests where bio-diversity creates rich flavor. We are proud to be among the leading group of companies to offer certified organic teas, and we seek to raise awareness for sustainable tea farming methods.
Making handcrafted tea has become less common over the years in favor of more modern, mechanized methods. In China, the old style roasting of green tea leaves in a wok over fire has given way to electric woks or industrialized ovens and roasters. Rolling of Oolong tea leaves by hand in Taiwan has given way to mechanical presses that mimic these hand movements. The most sophisticated modern methods can probably be found in Japan, where color sorting of leaves is done by laser-guided machines. Although these methods have allowed more yield for farmers, they are a departure from the art of the leaf.
Our focus is to offer teas that have been made per old-style methods. These approaches vary with the landscape and few remain committed to the raw form of tea spirit. Our work attempts to provide new infusions of energy and channels for traditional skills to be recognized.
