Smooth taste with just a hint of smokey flavor, wonderful aroma and a dark, golden brown color. What’s not to love?
Ceylon has a great/traditional black tea flavor that just won’t quit. It’s strong, but not overpowering, with hints of smoke, gunpowder and minerals. The aftertaste is smooth, with just enough of a bitter bite to remind you that you’re drinking black tea, but not so much that you need to balance it with milk or sugar. (Unless that’s the way you prefer it.)
The aroma complements the taste nicely, and adds to the smokiness that I love so much in this tea. It’s not super strong, but it’s there when you need it.
Definitely a winner if you’re looking for a mid-afternoon black tea to sip on.
