From Dilmah

Mid Grown 3300 feet above sea level. Doombagastalawa Estate, established in the late 18th Century is in the Mid Country Nawalapitiya District, which offers extraordinary scenic beauty as well as outstanding teas. Tasting Notes: dark golden brown with a biscuity taste. Medium bodied, deliciously dry and generous. Analogous to a Syrah grown in warm but not hot climate areas, on steeper slopes facing the sun. A handsome and impeccable tea.

Special triangular mesh bag allows large leaf teas to be used and to brew better as there is more space inside the bag. The tea can be seen clearly through the bag, enhancing its appearance.

Dilmah’s teas continue to impress me. This tea steeps to a dark golden brown and is very biscuity. Its very dry and has an intense flavor almost like an assam tea. This tea has the pyramid bags and really expands when steeped. It has no bitterness but does have a little astringency. A very nice tea.

Thank you, ToiToi for swapping this sample with me!

I had to try another Ceylon after my disappointing experience with Canton Tea Co’s Sri Lanka black. I wondered, had I lost my taste for Ceylon?

Nope! This tea is beautiful. Pleasant aroma with nice citrus notes. Just a little bit of astringency in the finish that makes your salivary glands wake up. I hope the tea bag lasts until morning so I can brew another cup!
