This is a stronger Ceylon tea than the New Vithanakande Estate FBOPF that’s my go-to Ceylon tea. It’s an aromatic CTC style tea that brews up a solid but not bracing cup. Maybe the best way to put As I write this tasting note, I’m finishing off a pot I steeped earlier today. I’m not quite as partial to it as I am the New Vithanakande Estate FBOPF, but it has earned a place in my non-Darjeeling afternoon rotation.

I’m a single dude approaching the age when I can no longer refer to myself as a “dude” without general snickering commencing. I am a computational research specialist/data scientist/system administrator currently working at a large public university in Texas where I am also working on a Ph. D. I’m in denial that my puppy is 10 years old and getting arthritic. I really like to grow things but I love to travel.
