Of the single estate teas I brought back from Sri Lanka this one went first. It’s a low grown but doesn’t have the depth and weight of some of the Ruhunu teas like Lumbini and New Vithekande which I’ve discovered since.At the time I preferred it to the higher grown teas but I’ve since learned that really Lover’s Leap and Mahadagotte are far better drunk black.Would pick this up again if I found a tin.All these dilmah tins are great for storage. The double lids make a very reliable seal.

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 7 OZ / 200 ML

Brought up on strong English tea with milk. Recently getting more interested in black tea following a visit to Sri Lanka and a bit of web browsing.
Ratings: Below 60 Not good
60-70 Good solid tea
70-80 Getting interesting
80-90 A bit special
90-100 Outstanding
There’s a time and a place for any tea above 60 which makes the number thing a bit of a mockery…
