This superior quality tea has been carefully selected from the seasonal production of Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings (BOPF).
Loolecondra, the first tea plantation of Sri Lanka was created by the father of Ceylon Tea, James Taylor in 1867. This special blend is made of fine fanning particles--creates a rich flavory blend, thick in color and character, suitable for tea drinkers who like it strong.
From the Loolecondera Estate, the first Ceylon Tea Estate since 1867.

I bought a couple pounds as a substitute for my favorite (Dilmah, which I could purchase reasonably-priced in New Zealand), because I remembered I'd had a tin of Looleconderra years ago and it was pretty good.
Sorry to say, my recent purchase of loose Looleconderra is no better than any other tea that one finds easily in the U.S. : tastes like counter-sweepings. I'm afraid handlers may leave loose-pack tea in the open and it absorbs foul odors/tastes.

Having worked in ireland for a while, I developed a taste for excellent tea and for the past fifteen years, I have used only Bewley's loose teas. My husband had a student from Sri Lanka who had visited our home and noted that I loved good tea. The next time he went home to Sri Lanka, he brought me a tin of this tea. I couldn't believe it was SO GOOD! I couldn't find it here in the US for the longest time, but was pleased to find it at My World Hut. I am about to buy a supply not only for myself by for the priest at our church who tasted it a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at the difference from the usual tea one buys at the grocery store.

This tea was part of a gift basket that I received. Not knowing much about it, I let it sit for a long while (couple of years) before I opened it. When I ran out of everything else, I used it and wow, I had never tasted anything like it before. It is the best tea I've ever had. I can't find it in any stores where I live so it's good to see I can order it online.

I grew up drinking tea and always it was good quality tea. Mlesna BOPF was one of them. Being SriLankan it is no surprise. When I came to USA ten years ago, it was hard to find good tea. Whenever I go back home, this is the only thing that I bring back to US. A suitcase full of Mlesna BOPF. Few of my friends ( non srilankans) who are hardcore tea drinkers tasted this tea and instantly liked it. Therefore I know it is one of the best. However for me and my husband it is the BEST tea in the world. I am so glad that I can buy this from myworldhut and I just ordered ten of the one pound containers.
One more thing, I make my tea very strong and add milk. However you can drink it without milk and if you do one cup of tea needs only 1/4 teaspoon of tea. Also brewing time is the key factor for a quality cup of tea. It should be 3minutes. Not more than that. The tea will taste bitter if you steep it for more than 3mins.

BOP Fanning tea contains smaller, finer particle than that found in BOP. I have tasted most BOPF brands from Sri Lanka and this is the best. This tea has the perfect blend of three qualities found in black teas: the Body (tastiness), the Aroma (smell) and the Tannins (bitterness), thus creating a strong, smooth, aromatic milk tea for breakfast (Note that you will need to use only full or 2% milk which should be scalded). None of these three qualities over power each other, and the aroma rivals those of highly priced BOP or OP teas from Assam or Nuwara Eliya.
