Needed a quick cup of something good. This didn’t disappoint.

I’m really liking Ceylon teas. Does anyone have a favorite vendor? I know this is a pretty basic black tea, but sometimes that’s exactly what I need.

I’m a big fan of SpecialTeas’ Ceylon Dimbulla OP. It’s extremely smooth and has a very faint chocolate taste. I’ve also seen good reviews of Mighty Leaf’s Ceylon Kenilworth.

Lena, has your opinion of their black flavored teas changed since tasting this sans flavor?

LENA

@ Bethany – Thanks! I’ll be sure to check them out.

@ Cofftea – I’m not a huge fan of their flavored tea or blends (for black tea). Some I like, but most have disappointed. I really like this tea and I agree that it is a great base tea for their flavors…if you generally like flavored teas.

@Lena, I love flavored teas, but am not big on blacks in general so I’m very selective. I only get flavored blacks when I can’t find a flavor match in another type of tea. Like their sesame- I think that’d be REALLY good as a green tea.

Metropolitan Tea Company sells a nice estate ceylon through www.jollygoodtea.com I’ve been ordering through this web vendor several times over the last 2 years and she’s on the ball and consistent. :)
