This is a nice, sharp Ceylon black tea with a strong scent of caramel. It is sweet in the cup, almost like candy. I drink my black teas with Silk Creamer and this one complements the Silk extremely well.

Like all Ceylon blacks I’ve had, it has a bit of tannin to the tongue, but it is not objectionable. That dryness is a welcome addition to the sweet. I can’t see drinking this over and over. I think it would become cloying in time but it would be particularly good when craving sweets in the afternoon.

Hah! I’ve definitely substituted tea for sweets before. Though it wasn’t so much out of wanting to be healthy as it was a matter of accessibility. Still, I’ll take it.

I really need to learn to be satisfied with the tea alone when I get a sweetness craving. Currently, I’ll sip the tea and think,
“Hmmm, this is very good, but it would be even better with a a little roll or perhaps a pastry.”

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
