Photo of Leaf of Ceylon Tea OPA from Ahmad Tea by Alex Zorach

Ceylon OPA, or Orange Pekoe A, is an unusually large-leaf grade of Ceylon tea. This tea is quite different from Ahmad Tea's normal Ceylon Tea. Although I prefer their regular Ceylon (which comes in yellow packaging, it's actually my favorite loose-leaf tea of theirs) I also really enjoy this one.

This tea in particular had a complex aroma and flavor with interesting bitter chocolate notes. It's dark and toasty!
