Wow! This is really quite different from the other Morawaka estate Ceylon teas that I’ve tried (those being broken leaf, this is whole leaf). This is lighter and crisper in taste, while the others were actually quite a bit stronger and bolder. This tastes very clean and very much what I’d expect from a Ceylon, only fresher in taste. Very uplifting and makes a nice afternoon cuppa.

The sweetness here is more like honey than burnt-sugar or caramel.

Yummy, and goes great with shortbread cookies too!

not an estate that I have had…what region does it come from and is it highland/lowland or sea side?

The Morawaka estate is in the Southern province of Sri Lanka. (Ruhuna region on the coast).

The Ceylon tea that I have tried was more honey in taste as it was a green tea; but I have noted that Ceylon can be black teas as well. Estate teas are quite different it seems than specialty blends perhaps.

Sorry, sounding out loud.

Seule771: Don’t be sorry! I was surprised to read that you have had green Ceylon, as I have never heard of it! My hubby loves Ceylon teas best, so perhaps that is something I should acquire for him to try. He is not a fan of green tea…yet!

Staufs Coffee roasters has had a Ceylon Oliphant estate green tea for years, mao feng styled leaf…a wonderful offering and while unusual, the huge almost oolong-like leaves help keep the extractions mild and easy and the flavor is nice, strong, but not ‘bright’ or astringent….

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
