From Taylors of Harrogate

The best highland tea gardens of the ‘Scented Isle’ yield mellow, golden teas with an aromatic bouquet. We select the very best teas from estates in the Dimbula region, where in the cool clean air the tea bushes grow more slowly, producing a fine quality crop with a delicate flavour and rosy colour.

Use a warmed teapot and add one teaspoon of tea per person and an extra ‘one for the pot’. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-4 minutes. Serve on its own, or add milk or a slice of lemon.

A bit of a change for breakfast this morning. A round flavor with a little spiciness, but only a touch of bitterness, despite using hotter water than I normally use.

My first Ceylon in my quest to learn more about black tea. I actually have the bagged variety.

Opened the box and a rush of fragrant, quintessential “this be TEA!” scent rushed at me. I immediately decided to brew it by the book, i.e., as close to the instructions on the box as possible. Which were: steep 4-5 min. in freshly boiled water, add milk or lemon. Pretty basic. Although I did use a large mug, so I also used two bags rather than one.

The sweet tea scent disippated after steeping, which made me sad. Perhaps I smothered it with too much milk. Next time I’ll try it plain. I may even purchase a lemon or two for my tea trials.

Cooled it a few minutes before drinking. This was my second mug of breakfast tea, so I wasn’t in a hurry.

This is sweet and gentle in my mouth. No astringency or bitterness. I could see keeping a pot handy throughout the morning and perhaps into the afternoon. Will have to see how the caffeine affects me after this cup.

I also have a sample bag of Harney’s to try so that will be next. But I would certainly buy this again. I believe I prefer it to T&H’s Pure Assam, but later in the weekend maybe I’ll try those two (Ceylon vs. Assam) head-to-head.
