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….

I am obsessed with tea!

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

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
