From Adagio Teas

Black tea from Sri Lanka. In colonial times, this island-nation was known as Ceylon. This name is still used to describe all teas grown here. Ceylon tea is bright and lively, with a wonderfully delicate flavor. The ‘Ceylon Sonata’ is the finest grade tea from the renowned Kenilworth estate, located in Sri Lanka’s Kandy region. The perfect afternoon tea.

Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

One of my favorite black teas. All the caffeine with a smooth taste. Not bitter, unless you steep for too long

This is one of my favorite black teas. It has a vivid and deep brown brew, a nice classic black tea flavor, very low bitterness, wholesome and satisfying mouth feel with a nice malty level, making this a terrific daily drinker for me.

Smooth, delicious and not bitter at all. Just enough citrus to notice but not overwhelming. Great both hot and cool. Read the full review here: http://www.abbisiler.com/tea/ceylon-sonata-adagio-teas

this is my go to “Plain” tea, not too harsh, not too dry. and almost impervious to an over steep. once my liter nalgene full got cold, throughout a day of drinking it on and off, i squeezed a wedge of lemon in, tossed it in the freezer for 30 minutes, and it was then iced tea.

After opening the sample, the first thing I smelt was chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Brewed scent is dry. Mellow flavor, slightly earthy. Needs to steep longer on next attemp

One of my mild after noon “go to” teas. Enjoy the mild taste.

The final specimen from that Raja sampler set. Gentle, light, and doesn’t seem to hold up too well for reinfusions. This is a fairly standard black tea; nothing too elegant.

NB: I made this note while sipping the first reinfusion (both at 4m, ~100°C).

EDIT: It does have a nice, mild sweetness that I hadn’t caught earlier.

disappointing. I found this tea to be very bland and lacking in character. I believe the flavor is similar to that of those little bags of brown dust that can be found on the shelves of any supermarket
