I am so sad that Drink the Leaf is closing. This is my all time favorite tea. I am kicking myself for not ordering a few weeks back when I had the chance. I did grab a new teapot and a Timolino in ocean blue for 50% off!
I have not been drinking hot tea, it is hot enough here in Texas. Tonight I made a teapot and savored each sip. So light and sippable. No astringency. Orange tones hit as I swallow the best Ceylon base. I am sadly in tea bliss.

So, thank you so much Drink The Leaf, for such a generous sample. When I dove into this orange swirly pool of deliciousness, I rejoiced knowing that I could enjoy about 6 more cups of this stuff before I ran out and had to buy some of my own. Let’s just say I’d buy this by the pound. Its wonderful! I love the orange oil Christmastide of it along with the strength of black tea that I love. No wimpyness here! Deck the halls and trick or treat in the same damn cup. Hell yeah.

I have been emailing them back and forth for a few weeks now and I think they sent me samples to keep me nice and docile. Great guys – super generous!

I always seem to be drawn back to this tea almost on a daily basis.
Why? you ask.
1. It is a simple tea, good for two great infusions.
2. I don’t have to add anything to enjoy the taste of the tea.
3. I really like the crispness of the blood orange peels.
4. It tastes good hot or cold, so it is good to carry with me to school:)
5. It is the prettiest tea in my cupboard and the smell in the tin is addicting.

I made a pot of this tea earlier in the week and last night and today. The smoothness of this tea is refreshing. Once upon a time ago, I wrote a review of this tea on It’s all about the leaf…I reread that review last night and I still feel exactly the same way toward this tea. I will include the link here just in case you are curious:)

I can’t wait to get my Breville. Being anywhere near hot water or a hot cup when it’s that hot.

My tea order came yesterday! I have long awaited another supply of this tea. So refreshing, good hot or cold. And the cold part is really good since it is nearing 100 degrees each day.

There is a nice natural honey sweetness to this tea but it isn’t at all complex. It is very smooth but I tend to prefer my breakfast teas a bit bolder, edgier, and more complex.

I am enjoying this tea a lot! It is really very good.

Such an interesting complexity to it, it reminds me of a fine wine. Delicious.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea. It is so good!

The flavor is very rich and delicious. There is a very nice sweetness to it. It has a nice wine-like quality to it. Deep and complex. I like it very much!

drank Ceylon Black by Drink The Leaf
1014 tasting notes

I finished up the last of my Ceylon Black this afternoon. I think this is one of the better ceylons I have had as I feel they are usually a bit weaker than I prefer my black tea. There is a definite chocolate note that really complements the additions of milk and sugar. I’ve enjoyed this tea while I’ve had it, but it isn’t one I would necessarily seek out in the future.
