Recent Tasting Notes


Sipdown! (15 | 362)

My last tea from Capital Tea Ltd.!

I’m not a big fan of Sri Lankan teas, but this was nice. It’s almost like it’s channeling an Assam with prominent deep, dark brown sugar notes. There’s also a bit of dried cherry and raisin, which also reminds me of Assam. But in the background is that classic Sri Lankan black tea flavor that I don’t know how to describe other than Lipton-y, ha ha… It’s a bit metallic I suppose. I also taste cinnamon and honey at the very end of the sip, which makes for a nice lingering finish.

Tasty, especially for a tea type that I don’t love! But at the end of the day, I’d rather have an Assam (for the brown sugar and raisin) or a Taiwanese black tea (for the fruit, honey, and cinnamon). :)
