Firstly, thank you to Tea Licious for having sent me this sample months ago. Secondly, I’m sorry Tea Licious, that I took so long to get to this sample. I’m terrible for that, on occasion.

This one is surprisingly pleasant. I don’t have much experience with Ceylons, so I am not sure of the nuances, but it is a wholly drinkable (and enjoyable!) black tea, if a little forgettable. I know this may be blasphemy, but it doesn’t seem terribly diffferent from my bagged Bigelow Ceylon (which I enjoy!). I get something approaching plum or raisin on the end of the sip, quite a sweet taste left in my mouth almost as if I had added a drop of honey. I could imagine this being a wonderful way to convert bagged black tea drinkers to the wonders of loose leaf. It almost has a hint of astringency, but it hasn’t developed any bitter impressions. I imagine it would easily take milk and sugar without being totally washed out, but I think it is fine as is.

I first came across this delicious Ceylon Tea while traveling in London. While shopping at Harrods, I came across the TWG Tea Booth, and the teller introduced this lovely Ceylon. I was so very pleased by the intoxicating aroma…the sale was instant. I enjoy this elixir in the later afternoon, before the evening meal. I love my black teas with milk and without the added flavour, but I also enjoy this particular tea pure. It is lovely to look at, and lovelier to sip and enjoy.

Lipton, eat your heart out! This is a great transition from tea bags to the wonderful world of loose leaf. Welcome to the Matrix
