Once I got used to brewing this and having it black I really enjoyed it. It’s a classic high grown ceylon (at least that’s what I realise now) .Clean clear light flavours and a threat of astringency if you oversteep it.I’m not sure I’d compare it to Darjeeling from the limited experience I have so far. This seems cleaner and clearer but less complex. These high grown ceylons seem like perfect refreshing afternoon teas to me. Crisp ,clean and not overcluttered.

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…
