I regret to report that this is sweepings and dust … at least the half tin I spilled on the floor. Too many precariously stacked tins and packages.
However, the portion that I did have is quite good. I’ve mentioned elsewhere that Ceylon often gets a bad rap because that’s the name that gets slapped on mediocre and less-than-mediocre grocery store teas. This one is the slightly more elegant cousin of a meaty builders’ tea like PG Tips.
Even looks like PG Tips in the tin, but steeped up a rich, deep burgundy this morning. Lighter and a tetch fruitier (I used coppery in a previous review) than a PG type. Good on its own, but milk accentuates it nicely.
