I had another cup of this last night, with milk. Ceylon has been used to death, and so many tea lovers have fallen out of love with it. Buy good Ceylons are versatile, if a little astringent, friends, and they make wonderfully fragrant brews, both hot and cold, with milk or without. They are also make for an unobtrusive base for any home-made blend that you want to make, and go well with lemon, Moroccan mint, mint, oranges, etc. This tea is my favourite BOP Ceylon blend, and is fantastically well behaved and dependable. And I just love the very “tea” smell of it when I open the caddy.
Don’t give up on Ceylons just yet, that is all that I’m saying. They are the bread and butter of tea, IMHO.

I’m glad to see another supporter of a decent Ceylon. It does get a bad rap, doesn’t it?

NofarS

It does, and I think that it’s probably because it’s been overused, and not used well.

Sipdown #2, from NofarS, thanks!

Admittedly, I am not a Ceylon fan. Something about Ceylons isn’t particularly pleasant for me, maybe astringency? It’s also the taste. It reminds me of the iced tea of my youth. I took a few sips, & put the rest in the fridge for later. What I really wanted was an Assam…
