From Camellia Sinensis

Here is a glorious tea produced in an artisanal way from the garden Amba in the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Its thin twisted leaves interspersed with golden buds were rolled by hand with the greatest care. Its bright red liquor is full and forthright, unfolding its vegetal (pepper), fruity (melon), and spice nuances. Its finish evokes the sweetness of butter caramel.

I love the Amba Tea Estate, and Camellia Sinensis has a fresh version.

Delicious wintergreen cherry taste to it, with a honey sweetness tempered with the malty ceylon base.

Was in a rush to get out the door this morning so I tried this tea thinking it would be a straight forward red tea and I would like it and go to work. Wrong. I used my Teavana large perfecta tea maker with 1 tbs tea to 16 oz water. The dry leaf has a slight pekoe smell. I poured in the water and saw the most beautiful red fawn color. The aromas had some fruitiness and also a very faint hint of kimchi, thats right kimchi. I make kimchi at home and yes it can get a bit boisterous but it also has this gentle sweetness from the chile flakes in it that I recognized in its bouquet. The steeping took all of 15 seconds, with flavors of apricot, pâte sucrée and bit of malt. Smooth very smooth, nothing screamed at you. I consumed my two cups in a hurry and brewed another, this time 20 seconds to get that same color. Just as good, I ran out of hot water and time at that point so see you tomorrow Uva Amba.

I love this tea! This tea was the reason why I started to like Ceylons.

It is a very well-made tea – both the wet and dry leaves are excellent! A touch on the strong side, though.

Best wishes,
sherubtse
