Hmmm. It’s not bad, per se. Highly astringent the way ceylons can be. The leaves must be either a first flush, or something akin to that because it tastes rather “fresh” but has very little depth to it, as Wayne mentioned. The tea is quality though. Very smooth for being bagged and not at all dusty.
Except, well, the maltiness is so minimal that I’m actually not looking forward to finishing the other 19 bags I have left. Atleast it was free! I’ll never turn down a free tea sample if I haven’t tried it before :)
I made Mum a cuppa to. If she doesn’t like it, would anyone else like to try this one? It just isn’t my cup of tea…

and she doesn’t like it, so anyone who wants it, it’s theirs!

At first I was really glad that I started the morning with this tea because it’s aromatic and had the sweetness of fruits. But as I continued to drink, my mouth got increasingly dry, and I realized that it was a very astringent tea. There’s no bitterness though. It’s a tea of good quality, it’s just that I didn’t enjoy astringent tea much.

So I have yet to try a Ceylon black tea that I really, really like – I think maybe it’s just one variety that doesn’t have the characteristics I’m looking for in my tea. I prefer a more full-bodied malty taste like Assam, or with some other interesting characteristics like Keemun or Yunnan Gold (Black Needles).

I can’t say it’s bad, but I can’t say I love it either.

A very light body with not much depth in the way of flavor. Has a peculiar aftertaste that I’m not caring for.
