This tea is full of wiry twisty tips. This was my first experience with a Ceylon tea and I enjoyed the vanilla and spicy notes, but in all I found the flavor a little less robust than what I was expecting. A very tasty cup, with an interesting mouth feel that lingered in the middle of the tongue. I tried adding slightly more tea and brewing the same and I noticed I got a more robust cup that I enjoyed. The smell of the leaves is quite high in vanilla and spice

I had a better experience using slightly more and making sure to not brew too long. Also seems to taste better with no sweetener as you catch more of the nuances.

Bio

I started drinking coffee at the age of 12, but I have recently found that the coffee I always enjoyed gives me headaches. Luckily I have no such issues with tea. I have just begun to discover the joys of a good cup of tea and figuring out what I like and don’t. So far I prefer black tea either Fujian, Keemun, Assam or Darjeeling that are fruit forward with a wisp of acidity or smokiness. I occasionally will drink green, jasmine or a bold white, but typically just to change things up. I hate fake fruit flavors, bitter tea or blah tea with no punch.

I live in the desert southwest, so in the hot summer afternoons you’ll likely find me iced tea in hand with a slice of lemon and sprig of mint. I also am a semi-foodie who enjoys a sharp sauvignon blanc, a jammy zinfandel or a dirty martini with the stinkiest cheese possible.

I am science nerd librarian with a love of fantasy books and astronomy. I am slowly writing a novel and dream of becoming a real writer and escaping the stacks.
