Thanks to the Devotea for providing me with this sample tea to try. It’s raining here and I had been wanting something warm and delicious to sip on — caffeine be damned!
This steeps up to be a lighter reddish-brown color. Definitely medium in body and a bit on the mild side. At first sip I was thinking this is a ceylon due to the fruity notes that are present, then I was thinking there was an orange pekeo or perhaps a second flush darjeeling in the mix. Either way, this is a really nice blend for the afternoon. No sign of bitterness or astringency, so this is an easy one to sip on plain but is also good with additions. Lord Petersham is nice but 1910 is still my favorite from the Devotea so far. :)
