From Bamboo Tea House

A tea worthy of its premium placement. Smooth and delicious nector-like brew. Medium strength. Great with or without milk.

Recently I have been making an effort to try more black teas that aren’t blends so that I can distinguish better between them. So, this is my first Ceylon.

The dry leaf smells like dried berries. Almost like craisins, actually. It has that kind of sweetness in the smell. Small, pretty black leaves that curl a bit.

The taste is very mellow. Definite chocolate notes, which is lovely, as well as a sweetness that reminds me of raisins. I thought the berry taste would be stronger because of the aroma, but it’s pretty mild. I think what I like most about this tea is that I can definitely taste several different flavors, even though I don’t have enough knowledge to identify which each one is. It’s not just one taste, and then me searching to see if I can find anything else in it.

What I don’t like is that it leaves my mouth pretty dry. Ugh. Definitely not a morning tea for me. Such an unpleasant feeling.
