Tea Grade: BP Black Tea (Broken Pekoe Black Tea)
BP black tea grade is produced using the method of CTC. It is a faster way to produce standard-quality tea. This method produces very tiny nuggets of tea particles. Also, the CTC tea is always strong.
It is all about the machining process. To manufacture the CTC-type tea, freshly harvested whole tea leaves are fed into the CTC machines. Then the machines crush, tear, and curl (CTC) them and process them in a period of just about two hours. Therefore, it produces small brown nuggets of tea.
CTC-type tea manufacturing is very popular in low and mid-grown tea areas in Sri Lanka. Our Broken Pekoe black tea (BP) has a very strong taste with or without milk. This is one of the top-selling tea grades in the Middle East tea market.
At Acril Tea, we supply certified organic tea (USDA, EU, and JAS) as well as conventional tea in Sri Lanka.
