Good morning, Steepster.

We’re trying the Ceylon again this morning and trying not to oversteep it too much this time as experience showed us that we’re dealing with a pretty unforgiving tea here.

And it’s still as dark as coffee and it still has that very Ceylonish aroma. I’m a bit concerned. Why the heck did I say in my first review of this upon purchase that it was surprisingly mild?

Oh well, at least it’s not unbearably bitter this time. It’s full and strong and just a hint of bitterness when I swallow. Not bad bitterness that comes with too long steeps or bad quality leaves. It’s the sort of bitterness that’s supposed to be there. It lends… I want to say ‘character’ but I’m wondering if I’m over using the word a bit. ‘Personality’?

Anyway, if it hadn’t been for yesterday’s chai-that-wasn’t-chai-experience, I’d have said it would work well with milk for those who likes milk tea, but having tried it and not really liked it much, I can’t make myself say that in good conscience. If you like sweetened tea, though, a bit of liquid honey might work.

0_o I was always under the impression that Ceylons were a lighter tea in most aspects than Assams and Darjeelings.

Angrboda

Ceylon. I’s doin it rong.

I can’t really find the lightness. Maybe I make it too strong.

teaplz

That’s what I would have thought, too, Jillian, since Ceylon is usually the base for a lot of flavored teas.

If you like strong tea, make it strong! :D

Angrboda

It is? I didn’t know that. Interesting. Makes sense though, since, strong or light, it has a very straight-forward taste. Your average Ceylon doesn’t seem to come with a load of typical taste notes. It’s just a tea that’s black, really.

(Oh yuck, huge red hairy spider in my tv! Remote, remote, my kingdom for a remote!)

I totally agree about the typical Ceylon tastes. I had a really good Ceylon once that had strong raspberry notes. Mind you, I don’t like raspberry so I wasn’t a fan but excluding that little fact, it really was a very nice tea. Other Ceylons though, just seem to taste like what you said… just tea.

Angrboda

And you’re sure it wasn’t actually a raspberry tea? ;)

Auggy

Haha! Positive! Just a higher quality Ceylon with CRAZY fruit notes!
