Finishing off the last of this tea this morning…
This is a very good and bold Ceylon. More briskness than in a typical Ceylon, but there is still that underlying smoothness to it. A pleasant malty character. Toothsome. A very enjoyable honey note.
A very good Ceylon!
I am enjoying a cup of this with my breakfast, and my opinion hasn’t changed on it since the first time I tried it – it is a delightful Ceylon, nicely brisk (especially considering it’s a Ceylon) with a smooth, creamy chewiness that I am really liking.
There is a backdrop of a honey-like tone to it as well, it isn’t like an IN YOUR FACE honey taste, just a… just-barely-there hint of honey that combines with the other qualities of this tea quite well and make for a very interesting cup of tea.
Not only did I have a cup of this last night but I also used it in cooking! I decided to make Vegan Creamed Spinach!
I posted it on my blog with a pic

I almost forgot how much I liked this tea! See other notes…upping rating a bit, too!
I really like this tea a lot.
Here is my full-length review of it:
The dry leaf has a strong vegetative scent with a subtle hint of flower. The brewed liquor is much softer.
Very light in flavor – fruit-like, sweet, and very yummy. Even though it smells strongly of vegetable, there is very little suggestion of it in the flavor… it’s there… but it hits just at the start of the sip and is quickly washed away by the sweet fruity notes. Astringency is faint but the palate feels very fresh and clean in the finish.
I like this one a lot.
Enjoying another cup of this tea as I finish up the full-length review for it (it’s scheduled for later this week, watch for it on the SororiTea Sisters blog: http://sororiteasisters.com )
Today, I taste less of the chocolate-y tones that I mentioned in earlier tasting notes, and more of a fruity taste that is quite reminiscent of mid-to-late summer when fresh peaches and apricots are ripe and delicious. The chocolate-y undertone still is there, and there is also a pleasant baked-bread kind of flavor, accompanied by a delicious malty tone. A very good tea, indeed.
Just got back from some errands and I’m turning to this tea to re-energize! Yum. I just realized that i didn’t write a review of this tea, so I guess I have something to add to my to-do list for this week.
Delicious, malty, with a deep cocoa note. I am also getting the apricot-peach finish that lingers a bit in the aftertaste. Quite delicious.
I am enjoying a cup of English Breakfast at the moment (it’s almost gone already!) You can read my full-length review of this tea here: http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=15531
I’ve only enough of this tea for another cup – actually closer to a half a cup! It is really good… one of the best Mango flavored green teas I’ve yet to taste. It has a very beautiful fragrance – a very STRONG aroma! Lovely.
The flavor is very much like a fresh, ripe mango. Sweet with no tartness to it at all. The green tea falls somewhere between “grassy” and “vegetable” in taste, and it melds very well with the mango taste.
This is a delicious way to wind down this evening. I still have a few things that I need to get done though, so I’m not quite ready to start reaching for the herbals… so this is smooth and relaxing… without being TOO relaxing.
The scent is VERY mango, and it translates into the flavor very well. Sometimes the mango flavor in tea is a bit soft – NOT here. This is MANGO paradise! The green tea is pleasant tasting too – fresh, slightly vegetative, and sweet.
A delightful cuppa!
