From Tealish

A smooth tasting medium bodied Ceylon OP1, featuring big, wiry black leaves from the Berubeula Estate in the Ruhuna District. The infusion is deeply aromatic, with notes of blackberries & chocolate. A special treat for ceylon lovers.

Ceylon black tea is perfect for the morning or afternoon and can be enjoyed clear or with a splash of milk.

Brewing Instructions: Ceylon orange pekoe black tea is prepared like other black teas, using boiling water and steeping for 2-5 minutes. Use 1 tsp loose leaf tea per 6-8oz of water.

Wow, what a difference!! this is fantastic when done right.
I taste more raspberry than chocolate, which I find odd since it was more chocolatey before. Then again I used a proper measuring spoon this time.
With or without milk, I would love this. A dash of sugar really helps bring out the raspberries to.
Ceylon is typically not my style, but this, THIS is my new love of the week. It reminds me of childhood for some reason, and I suspect it’s sentimentality that causes my swooning. My tastebuds are impressionable, by memory, it seems.
I wonder if they will pop in the second steep as well…

On unrelated business: The hot water I can get at my Monday/Wednesday office is terrible! ick! I’m so not looking forward to work tomorrow…
On the plus side, I’m over my tea aversion! :)

gmathis

I hate to waste good teas on office water, too.

Indigobloom

it’s awful! The walking distance tea shops are terrible as well. I’m actually considering leaving for work early just so that I can make the trek to my local Teaopia first!

Indigobloom

oh and the second steep is just as lovely as the first <3

Thank you IndigoBloom for this big Sample

In my younger lady days (1977), I had no idea at all how to prepare tea. My neighbor was from Ceylon (Sri Lanka now) and went home for a visit, bringing home a big quantity of very superior tea as a gift for me. I ruined it…not knowing how to properly steep tea. I threw some leaves in a pot, put boiling water in and after awhile drank the tea (never removing the leaves). Of course the tea became bitter right away.

IndigoBloom has supplied me with a do-over! The forgiveness of my former tea sin!

I do love black tea. Most of the ones I taste are from China, a few from India but none really from Ceylon. This lovely tea was quite vanilla floral and cocoa smelling. There was astringency but no bitterness. Adding sugar and cream inproved the tea and increased the chocolatey malty taste. I didn’t taste or smell raspberry which others have commented on.
My response to the tea itself was that it was clear, bright, light with an almost sparkling quality that reminded me of a freshwater spring. I know that sounds strange, but it had a quality of freshness that made it a perfect tea for blending with heavier black tea’s. It was also what makes this tea perfect for iced tea. It was CLEAN tea!

Thank’s Indigo-B

Indigobloom

clean, yes I get that to! not the vanilla though

Bonnie

Eh, may have been the whim of the evening or magic!

Indigobloom

some tea dust perhaps? ;)

The Ceylon teas I have tried up to this time (not that many) have been far less interesting to me than the Darjeelings, Assams, Keemun’s and other blacks. This one, however, really intrigues me. The berry notes are present during steeping and after. I liked that, it actually drew me to the cup from arms length at my desk to take it in. It is a little astringent, but that is ok with me. Each sip finishes very clean and sharp. There is a depth to this one that seems familiar, but I am having trouble placing it. I may have to track more of this down and figure it out. For now, it will remain a mystery to me. Thanks to Indigobloom for the chance to try a little of this!

KeenTeaThyme

Glad to see you’ve “returned” to Steepster! :)

teawing

Thanks KTT, I have not really been gone, just have not been posting much. Busy with life but still drinking tea…I trust you are well? :)

KeenTeaThyme

As long as you’re feeding the addiction… ;) Yep, things are well with me. How ’bout you?

teawing

@KKT doing just fine. Busy, but not out of control. Just right…

Indigobloom

wow, have I made a Ceylon convert?! :)
—I tend to get a slight chocolate note from this sometimes, but not every time. One day I will figure out why/how!

My this stuff is Super Good!
Thank you Indigobloom for sending a sample of this may way!
Absolutely going on the shopping list for a bright fruity and smoothly chocolaty morning brew!
I was very surprised as I was only expecting this to be your average every day black tea.
It really is so much more!
LOVE IT!

LOL yes this reminds me of Harney’s Marco Polo… only naturally flavoured! sadly, I started to lose the nuances in this one for some reason and it ended up in the back of my cupboard! SO glad the last of it found an awesome home <3

Azzrian

And I appreciate it :)
