Sadly I only really worked out how to brew this toward the end of the tin. Similar to Lover’s Leap with that clear light high grown quality but when overbrewed this one really does become minerally and metallically bitter. Time it right and you have an exceptional tea. The older wiser me will be looking out for some higher quality leaf version of this in the coming months.I don’t think dilmah are doing this range any more but my partner may be able to fetch some back iin the Autumn.

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…
