This one is rather tough to describe – I feel like there’s a lot going on, but it’s simultaneously a pretty straightforward Ceylon. On the surface, it tastes exactly like what most people would think black tea tastes like: slight hint of lemon, very smooth, not much bitterness or astrigency. When you dig deeper, some great hints of flavor come out: tobacco, florals, fruitiness. This would make a great everyday black tea.
