This is a good solid Ceylon.

It doesn’t have a lot of subtleties. There is a note of tobacco, but otherwise it’s just a sort of strong generic Ceylon flavor… That dark, somewhat burnt, somewhat bitter, taste I connect with ceylons.

It’s quite yummy, but it’s not one that says, “I will seduce you with my subtle note of this, my lingering tastes of that…”. Instead it comes up and yells, “BAM! I’m a Ceylon!”.

And if you like a good strong and straight-forward Ceylon this is for you.

This smells fairly unremarkable with a plain “black tea” scent. No noticeable notes stand out.

Ditto on the flavor. It tastes like a run-of-the-mill black tea… not strong in any particular flavor, no pleasing feeling of balance… just plain old generic black tea.

Not bad tasting at all, but I’m going to pour this cup out and try something else. It really has nothing about it that grabs me and makes me want to finish the cup.
