Ceylon is sourced from the tea plantations of Sri-Lanka, formerly Ceylon, which lie close to the equator, giving the perfect conditions for slowly growing this tea at high altitudes. Considered one of the best tasting teas, Ceylon has a distinct flavour, aroma and strength. This pack contains 500g of loose leaf Ceylon tea.
With its crisp aroma and pale, orange colour, this blend is best enjoyed with milk or a slice of lemon. Ceylon has a brisk, tiger balm flavour and is full of character.
Black tea contains polyphenols, a type of antioxidant. Caffeine and an amino acid called L-theanine are also found in black tea, which is said can improve alertness and focus – even more than coffee!
This tea is to be enjoyed at any time of the day, from your first cup in the morning through to your last brew as you wind down in the evening.
Using traditional methods of blending and tasting, this tea has been carefully crafted by the Miles team, using Miles experTeas!
Based on the edge of Exmoor and on Somerset’s coastline, we take inspiration from our beautiful surroundings to create a cuppa that embodies a little escape, evoking memories of a holiday in the West Country, with each sip. Our attention to detail and experience ensures a consistent, flavourful tea that will see you constantly topping up your mug.
We are founding members of the Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP). The ETP is a not-for-profit organisation, which convenes tea companies, developing agencies, governmental and non-governmental organisations to improve the lives of communities within the tea sector. Each purchase directly helps to provide better living and working conditions for those working in the tea trade.

100% black tea
Black tea is best made with water brought to a full boil and used immediately for the tea to release its full flavour (if you're using a teapot remember to warm the pot first). Use one teaspoon of loose-leaf tea per person.
Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes. If you like your tea strong add more tea, don't steep for longer as this will turn the flavours bitter.
Drink with milk, with lemon or on its own.
Our Ceylon tea is available in packs of 125g or 500g of loose leaf tea. We also have a loose leaf Ceylon Orange Pekoe.
We like to enjoy this brew with a light sponge cake, delicately flavoured with orange.
Make sure you store your tea in an airtight container – a tin is better than plastic, or seal up the packaging it arrives in. Although tea feels dry, it contains 3 % moisture and oils that are essential to its flavour. If not properly stored these can evaporate. Keep your tea in a fairly cool, dry place, which is out of sunlight and try to keep away from any spices that could taint the flavour.
