This is a pretty decent chai!
I picked it up because it was super affordable and I was lacking chai in my cupboard.
Having a bagged tea around is also really good for when I want tea but haven’t got time to wash my infuser. (or when I’m feeling super lazy :P )
This is the perfect balance of mild malty goodness and spice. A little too astringent but then I find Chai usually is because I oversteep it so that the cup will tolerate my addition of milk better. For some reason I tend to find the milk is too overpowering when made on a stovetop so adding a dash or two of milk is ideal for me.
Also, I sampled it before adding some milk and I suspect I’d really enjoy a full cuppa that way as well.
Something else that impressed me was the vacuum packed bag inside the box, and then the plastic sealing it overtop of the box! Ultimate freshness. Then again, it does say it was packaged Jan 29 2015. Bah. 20 bags for $2.50. I’m not complaining. Not yet anyhow!

A pure Ceylon tea in tea bags; common to the island of Sri Lanka. I had a chance to try this tea when a co-worker, native to Sri Lanka, brought some back from a visit home. Its a good, medium body ceylon. Very generic…leads to guess that its a blend, but then again, I have never met a Ceylon tea that I didn’t like. Brews fast and brews dark, like the other Tea Tang teas from Sri Lanka.

Royal Tea B.O.P [the blue tin] is a ceylon blend brought back from Sri Lanka by a workmate. This is advertised as a pure high grown ceylon blend and it delivers everything you’d expect. Brews clear and bright in the cup with a hit of red in the brown. Light in the mouth with a nice astringency and good flavor. A nice bite without being bitter.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec

The flavour is smooth with a bit of sweetness. This tea has small, broken leaves and tastes like many Ceylons is rather mild.
