My second cup of this tea. It is not only less citrusy than Twinings Ceylon, it also maltier: perhaps the malty taste covers up the citrus notes.

How i got it: Bought It (Basilur’s “Leaf of Ceylon” Assorted Pack)

Experience: Well, this is the fifth and last tea in the “Leaf of Ceylon” pack. It has a quite delicate aroma, not very intense, but complex; it reminds me to spiced varieties like Twinings’ Russian Caravan. On the other side, its flavor is light, and has a low-to-mild intensity and good duration. At the beginning of the sip, it tastes a bit similar to a Darjeeling, but it gains more of a Ceylon character reaching the end. I sense some very nuanced notes of caramel and toffee too, although this tea don’t have additives or scents. Interesting tea, and a very good ending for the experience of the pack. One of Basilur bests, i’d say.

Would i buy it again?: Being enjoyable as it is, i’m not fully decided yet, but sure has good possibilities
