Okay for a Ceylon black bag, much better than Lipton or Tetley (which doesn’t say much), but not nearly as flavorful as the Twinings Ceylon. It is also more astringent and drying (higher tannin content?). I steeped this for less time than I did the Adam peach tea, which had a bitter aftertaste because I steeped it too long. Even at 2 minutes, 45 seconds it still has a bitter aftertaste. I will probably only drink this if I am out of other Ceylon teas.

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
