Bought this tea at the Asian market because I remembered liking it before. Its not all bad but it is overly astringent is the main thing. I had to add milk, or actually unflavored coffee creamer to it. Otherwise it is basically a strong Sri Lankan breakfast tea. I think it is from Sri Lanka but do not remember. Its a little bitter too.

I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 190 degree water for 2 min. I think it would be better with a 1 min steep.

Rickshaw – Ceylon (black). Loose. Appearance: black CTC leaves, small cut but larger than bag, otherwise unremarkable. Liquor: dark red. Smell: fragrant and assertive. Taste: strong, with distinct Assam notes. Initially very bright, but quickly becomes astringent and bitter. Without milk or sugar, it was often too strong. With milk and sugar, it was unremarkable. It was too strong for me. A friend who normally likes black teas thought it was not strong enough, as it was not a clear breakfast blend. 2/10.
