I was surprised to discover that I hadn’t already rated this lovely Ceylon so here it goes:

In my book, this is the archetype of a high quality Ceylon.

You get what you see: the hand rolled leaves you see in the image are exactly what you get, once steeped they unfurl and give off that wonderful earthy-Ceylon smell. None of that menthol aroma on these tea leaves.

This tea has both earthy and floral notes, and its a lovely amber color. As the tea cools the earthiness becomes more predominant. When piping hot – my favorite way to drink tea – the steam an floral aroma mix and its not so bad to be awake in the early morning. The smooth floral flavor has an elusive hint of fruit that I just cant put my finger on.

This also makes a delicious iced tea with or without lemon.
