From Dilmah

An estate of 460 hectares, Somerset is located in the Dimbula Valley on the Western slopes of Ceylon’s central ‘Tea Country’. Tea was first grown at Somerset after the failure of coffee in the area.

Reflecting the cool and moist climate of the Talawakelle District, this Somerset Estate Uda Watte is bright, with medium body and a presence that makes it the ideal introduction to the collection of Watte Single Estate Teas.

I had this first thing in the morning. It has a bigger, bolder flavor than the other Dilmah single estate teas I’ve tried so far. There’s not much to say about this one, but it’s good.

Thank you, ToiToi, for giving me the opportunity to try this tea!

I like this Dilmah tea. It steeps up to a dark down color with orange tints to it. This tea has a much cleaner taste than the other dilmah teas I have tried. It has no bitterness or aftertaste at all. It has a little astringency. It has a very nice flavor and a kick much like a mild assam tea. My wife likes this one as a breakfast tea as the assams that I have are much too strong for her.

Fair to middling supermarket-acquired tea; good tea bag, but the tea itself looked a bit broken (not whole tea leaves). Held up with milk and sugar, but didn’t have an especially pronounced, strong tea flavor or aroma. Would brew with a longer steep time in the future.

A nice warming rounded brew,makes a good afternoon tea but really needs to be drank black. Not as refined as the high growns but more warming and less likely to get tannic on you if you over steep it.The leaves are reasonably chunky BOP.I expect they’d need bigger bags if they used bigger pieces!
