Recent Tasting Notes
Being a heavy tea drinker, who enjoy all type of tea its always a tough decision for me on what to order the next time. After some heavy research, on the product, categories, quality, price etc I finally settled here, as it seems to be ideal balance of all.
Item arrived on time in two days (thank god or amazon prime :) ), good packaging but little bit wasteful.
Each tea bag is not individually wrapped, though not a trouble for me as I keep them in airtight containers but can be put off for some persons.
On the first brew, the color of tea is first seen as golden which do change to orange-red depending on time. It has a natural sweetness to it, so if you are planning to contaminate your tea with sweetner please take it in consideration.
Slightly sweet, no bitter note at all(have no clue how they do not have any tannin). Stronger than expected aroma of rose and slight flowery smell, may seem peculiar for a ceylon tea but it does go very well. After taste is smooth, rich and bold like a good ceylon tea should be.
Things to care about :
1. Do not get fooled by the color and brew too less. To wait 3-5 minutes can seem to be pretty long when staring at a tea cup.
2. Its definitely not for those who pollute the tea with cream or milk, you are better for with some Darjeeling or Assam tea.
3. Just take usual care of tea brewing, like not to re-boil the water, keep boiling it for too long etc.
4. Relax and now enjoy this master blend :)
