The smell inside of the bag is… cumin? Coriander? Clove? WTF? It smells like the hills of Sri Lanka in this bag!

3 spears for 200ml
This takes a while to steep.

I can still smell the curry spices, maybe a little cinnamon. The flavor is like butter and honey but very subtle, and there is a very distinct ceylon flavor on the back end. It’s yummy but very light.

I got 3 good steepings out of it.

Preparation

After reading the other reviews I’m wondering why nobody mentioned the curry spice smell, it’s the most present aroma in this tea for me.

My bag of them doesn’t smell like curry (but I haven’t tried the tea yet).

Mine smells like curry spices, I cannot imagine why.

Bio

I’m a professional musician. I tour the country and shake my ass to pay for my tea habit.

I tried a cup of some very good Tieguanyin in 2009. That was it. Tea became my thing.

I love pure teas. I love oolongs with natural orchid aroma, winey keemuns, and most things jasmine. I dislike things that taste artificial.

My tea rating system is mostly arbitrary.

There’s a tea for every occasion and I hate having occasions missing from my tea stash.
