(SKU: LS90000D12) The FBOPF EX SP from New Vithanakande is one of the best low-grown teas in Sri Lanka. Although it represents only 1% of the garden's production, this grade's finesse and aromatic richness have impressed connoisseurs over the last few years.

Appearance: long, dark and well-rolled leaves that are not broken despite what might be assumed from the grade. Plucking features plenty of buds, somewhere between gold and silver.

Scents: fruity bouquet (ripe apples, strawberry), chocolaty and woody.

Scents: woody (damp wood) and fruity (apple), note of wet flowers.

Color: mahogany, nice and clear liquor.

Texture: slightly oily, with a hint of astringency.

Flavors: slight bitterness.

Aromas: woody and honey notes – typical of low-grown teas – culminating in the distinct presence of an apple note.

Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: initially soft and supple, the notes mainly develop at the mid-point. Long in the mouth, supported by the bitterness.
