Very nice for a Ceylon (but I have to say I did like Andrews and Dunham’s Ceylon better – it had more pizzaz despite it being a Ceylon. I keep wanting to type Cylon – but I won’t go there!!). This could be because I like milk and sugar in my black tea, and this tea just didn’t stand up to it in the way I like. I guess that’s why I am an Assam and Panyang Congu type of gal!

Oh! and this is tasting note number 100 for me :) Neat!

This is actually what I just finished in my own cup, actually. The more I drink it the more the molasses and berry they tout seem to come to the front for me. I tend to only ever use turbinado or rock sugar anyway, but using the turbinado definitely beats out any other sweetener with this tea, for me…it underlines some of the flavors already there. Also, the cylon thing made me giggle.

Ha! yea I have been saying it Cylon for a bit now….not sure how to break the habit (the tea leave look like humans now?)

Ricky

Wait wait, you put milk & sugar in A&D’s ceylon? I have to try that!

JacquelineM

Ricky – yup :)

AmazonV – I looked in my tea cabinet and said – OMG! Is Marco Polo really a Cylon!?! Is Florence a Cylon? Are Jackee Muntz and Thomas Sampson actually Cylons coming into my tea cabinet to wreak havoc and

- WHO IS THE FINAL CYLON!?!?!!?

and what was Starbuck(s) !!?!?!?!!?

AmazonV

Man, other than Starbucks the green siren of coffee I couldn’t tell you what she was, the ending broke my poor little brain…

JacquelineM

I am so sorry, but whenever someone talks about reaching a numerical milestone, the WoWer in me has this undeniable need to say, “DING!”

So, DING! Congratulations!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
