Another free sample from Laurent and Sophie at Nina’s Paris USA. This Ceylon tea smells slightly sweet and earthy and Ceylon-y. Ceylon has its own unique smell to me. The tea tasted bold but smooth. There was just a tinge of natural sweetness to the Ceylon. There is some malt to it, but it is not super malty. It did leave the slightest dry feeling in my mouth after swallowing but I would not describe it as astringent at all. Very good Ceylon. It makes me think it would make a great iced tea.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
