Prior to trying this tea, I tried looking up the company name and I could not find any information about this tea company. So I thought to myself, this is going to be interesting. I opened the box and there were two plastic packages,twenty-five bags each. When I opened the plastic there was little to no aroma. Well, this is not good. I put a tea bag in my cup and turned on my fancy shmancy electric kettle with thermostat control and heated the water to 180 degrees. When the kettle beeped to tell me the water was ready, I poured it over the bag and the most amazing aroma lifted from my cup. It smelled like a pomander ball made from oranges and cloves mixed with the floral minty aroma of the Ceylon. The color of the brewed tea is a beautiful auburn. Now for the flavor, sigh of relief. This tea is delightful. It has the true Ceylon flavor, mellow, a bit bitter with a sweet aftertaste mixed with orange and cloves. I also picked up a bit of cinnamon and cardamon, more of an after thought than in your face like the orange and clove. This tea may not be for everyone, but for me it is delightful and also brings feelings of nostalgia.
