From Dilmah

High above the town of Nuwara Eliya, Lover’s Leap is
named after the tragic legend of two young lover’s who
leaped from the top of a picturesque waterfall on the estate.
An area of outstanding beauty, where the crisp mountain
area carries the fragrance of abundant cypress groves,
eucalyptus and wild mint.

Tasting Notes: Light brown-yellow with green nuances. Bright, breezy, effortlessly light and snappy yet with tannins of fortitude. Long lasting in aftertaste. Like Champagne made from cool climate grapes picked just before they get too ripe. And exquisite and alluring tea.

Sorry I have been absent for a month but my wife and I have been moving into an improved remodeled house. It took almost 2 years to get it the way we wanted it. I even have a tea pantry now (Its really more of a hutch but its all tea).
This is a very nice Ceylon tea. Its woodsy and fruity and reminds me of a darjeeling. I even like the pyramid tea bags although they are stuffed after steeping. I’m going to try cutting open a bag and steeping to see if there is any difference. I have been drinking Dilmah as breakfast tea for the last month (I have 4 varieties) and it has really grown on me. Now to try other Ceylon teas. I have to buy more tea as the last month has really done a number on my stash.

I was having a bad day and this tea really perked my mood up. I’m not sure if it’s because I really really enjoyed the tea( which i did!) or if the action of drinking tea just makes me happier.

A good tea always makes me feel better! Sometimes I wish I could crawl directly into my matcha bowl lol. Hope your day continues to improve!

Reminiscent of a very high quality Darjeeling, but with stronger tannins. The flavor blooms and expands in your mouth. Woodsy, oak-like scent to the dry leaf and liquor. Light like a Darjeeling or a crisp Chardonnay, but fully flavored with layers of depth in taste and aroman

First, thank you ToiToi for this tea!

I brought a teabag of this with me to breakfast this morning, but the water I was given was not very hot. This resulted in a weak, slightly sour and fishy cup. I wanted to give it a fair review, so I brewed another cup this evening.

Many people said that this reminded them of a Darjeeling, and this in certain ways this was true for me too. It was brisk and woodsy but it did not have any floral or muscatel notes at all as far as I could tell. It had a little bit of unidentified citrus zest to it as well, but maybe this was more of a texture I was picking up on- the tannins are strong, but they don’t dry my throat as much as they cling to my tongue and roof of my mouth. There is a sweet aspect which almost tastes like skim milk was added.

What a difference the water temperature made! I really enjoyed this second cup!

Once I got used to brewing this and having it black I really enjoyed it. It’s a classic high grown ceylon (at least that’s what I realise now) .Clean clear light flavours and a threat of astringency if you oversteep it.I’m not sure I’d compare it to Darjeeling from the limited experience I have so far. This seems cleaner and clearer but less complex. These high grown ceylons seem like perfect refreshing afternoon teas to me. Crisp ,clean and not overcluttered.

I like to enjoy it in the morning, while breathing the fresh air on the yard and listening to bird chirping.
