A Visit to Lover's Leap

In April we visited the Pedro Estate, famous for Lover’s Leap tea.  The estate is located in Nuwara Eliya, also referred to as ‘little England’ due to the colonial bungalows and red post boxes, as well as the misty weather!  It rained almost the whole time we were there, except when we went to explore the tea estate and Lover’s Leap waterfall, where this famous tea gets it’s name.

All true tea comes from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis, and it is the way the leaves are processed that give us so many different varieties of tea.
