Long time, no see. I’ve been away, and when I wasn’t, I was at work. So there. Unfortunately I didn’t have much time to drink tea either. I tried a few new ones though, and I’ll try to write notes about some of them.
This tea completely surprised me because it’s really a ceylon. And I never thought a ceylon could taste like this. Very malty with the best bitterness that I have experienced in tea. It’s a kind of bitterness you would get from honey, where you can almost taste the pollen and this honey’s very early planty origin. I am probably not expressing myself clear but OH WELL. ;D It was bittersweet, like the most beautiful goodbyes – does that make more sense?
Anyway, I really loved this tea and I will be definitely getting more of it. It resteeps fairly well, too, although loses a bit of its beauty in the process. I also think that I have to revise my approach towards ceylons. They are not all boring…
Thank you, Single Origin Teas, for sending me a generous sample to try!
