At the Taprobane Tea Company our most important aspiration is to bring premium quality tea to the tea cups of all Australians. Our motto is “A Smile With Every Sip!” To achieve this aspiration we select only premium quality, high grown Ceylon teas. The tea leaves in our products are collected by hand from tea gardens located at the highest elevations in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). Typically, skilled workers pick only the freshest growth – the top two young leaves and a bud. This careful hand-picking of the leaves is one of the reasons that Ceylon tea is of such high quality. Within a few hours of plucking the fresh tea leaves are processed at tea factories on site. Within a very short time, twenty-four hours at most, the tea is ready for drinking.
Our premium quality black tea and green tea are certified 100% pure Ceylon Tea by the Ceylon Tea Board and so our products carry the Lion Symbol of quality. We also have a range of delectable flavoured black and green teas for you to enjoy. Tea is the most widely drunk beverage in the world. Over one and a half billion cups of tea are consumed every day. The “tea drinker… with tea amuses the evening, with tea solaces the midnight, and with tea welcomes the morning.” (~Samuel Johnson)
Tea, whether it is black tea or green tea, is a health-full beverage that is both calorie-free and fat-free and is low in sodium. It also contains calcium, folic acid and the vitamins B1, B2 and B3. Tea is naturally rich in anti-oxidants so you can be sure that when you drink our tea you are consuming a health-full beverage rich with the most wonderful aromas and flavours. All of our black tea and green tea products can be enjoyed steaming hot or chilled with ice. We do hope you enjoy them.
At Taprobane Tea Company we insist on the highest quality. With this in mind we carefully selected one of the very best blending and processing facilities in Sri Lanka to prepare our products. In a joint venture project with one of the largest importers of tea to Japan, our supplier built a state-of-the-art tea cleaning, blending and processing plant. They have standards of the highest quality and have certification from the following1: National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia; Internal Organization for Standardization for Quality Management and Food Safety Management; Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points; Food Safety System; and Good Manufacturing Practices.
The management of the blending and processing facility has also incorporated stringent measures to ensure employee safety. In addition, it is an equal opportunity employer and its remuneration packages are well above industry standards.
The impressive tea processing equipment at the plant consists of a dust containment unit, which extracts excess dust particles to give a clean, uniform tea blend; magnet units and metal detection units to remove any metallic particles from the tea; a sifter and vibration unit which removes any impurities from tea and; lastly, a blending drum which thoroughly mixes tea to obtain a uniform blend. The plant has a specially designed and scientifically equipped facility for quality control and for tasting and analysing all teas. The blends of teas are carefully selected by expert tea tasters who take careful note of such factors as leaf appearance, colour, aroma and strength of brew.
Lastly, tea bags are manufactured on sophisticated machinery that produces Double Chamber tea bags with a String and Tag. Note that metal staples are not used to attach the string and tags to the tea bags. Double Chamber tea bags produce a faster and more even brew of tea than the traditional single chamber tea bags. All of this means that Taprobane Tea Company products are carefully chosen and hygienically processed so that our customers receive premium quality black, green and flavoured teas1.
All thanks to our friends at Tabrobane Tea and Modern Currency we have the range of 11 teas to review and comment. We decided to make it very special - the same way these teas are.
