From SpecialTeas

The Nuwara Eliya region has the highest-situated estates in Ceylon. Teas from this district are called the “Champagne of Ceylon” teas. This full-leaf orange pekoe is a bit more delicate and aromatic than the No. 304. It is a medium- bodied tea with a hint of sweetness and the typical lemony notes. Infused longer than the recommended 2.5 min., it develops an interesting bite. Makes excellent iced tea.

This is a nice afternoon black tea. It is malty and has something in the background that I haven’t identified yet (the description says lemony, so perhaps that is what I am tasting). No bitterness after brewing for 2 min in a small teapot.

Update: the Harney & Sons book says teas from this estate have a wintergreen aroma and background flavor. Maybe I can detect a little of that, and perhaps that is the flavor I was trying to indentify… but I am not sure I would have come up with that on my own.

Truly wonderful! I’m generally a Kenilworth girl when it comes to Ceylon, but the light, refreshing complexity of this one really won me over. I’ll keep this one in stock regularly if I can.
