Yep! The best Valentine’s day drink has to be our Lovers Leap. It is a seasonal single estate tea that is grown at 6000ft above elevation in the Nuwareliya region of Sri Lanka. The estate gets its name from a prince who fell in love with a fair maiden eloped to the area while being pursued by the kings men. When they realised they could never be, they embraced and leapt from the waterfall. Sad story but great tea is made from the plantation. You see more here:
