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.
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.
