I am upping this rating by a few – this is a solid black, actually, it’s better than solid – it’s a great black. HD had a cup with Sugar and said it was terrific!

Ceylon is the ancestral name of the island nation of Sri Lanka, located off the southeastern coast of India. The name of the country was changed in 1972 but the teas are still known as Ceylon’s.
The Mahagastotte Estate is in the Nuwara Eliya district in the shadow of Pidurutalagala, Sri Lanka’s highest mountain. Mahagastotte in the native language means “place with large trees”. Teas from this estate are sometimes known as Lover’s Leap, a reference to the story of the King’s daughter who jumped off the mountain precipice with her forbidden lover.
Our selection is a medium body black tea with a fragrant bouquet and aromatic flavor, making it the perfect first cup of the day or a quick afternoon pick me up.
