11 Tasting Notes

80

This is supposedly the perfect foundation for a good punch – just brew long and dark, and add your alcohol of choice (sweet Rum is the obvious choice).
As it is, it is a good, aromatic brew – with two spoon-fulls of brown sugar it is perfect as a late night cup.
Without sugar, might work well with spiced meats and saffron-flavored dishes in particular.

Good summer drink – ice-cold on a hot afternoon, or warm (but not hot!) on a cooler evening.
Requires long steeping time to taste better.
Use brown sugar liberally.

drank Ceylon by Pickwick

Pickwick used to be my grandmother’s tea of choice, so there is a sentimental element to my opinion.
Good with some milk, if you are into that sort of thing.

Yay for sentimental tea even if it isn’t superior!:)

My favourite for late night consumption – not too strong, nice with two spoons of sugar.
Increasingly hard to find.
