From Twinings

Pure black tea expertly blended with a subtle hint of citrus flavor and aroma of fresh succulent grass on a summer’s day.

Ceylon Tea comes from the country that today is known as Sri Lanka. Twinings Ceylon tea is made using the finest quality high grown teas from the Dimbula region in western Sri Lanka. In the 1870’s, Ceylon became a major tea producing area after the coffee crop failed. Its tea is still referred to as “Ceylon” despite the country changing its name to Sri Lanka in 1972 following independence. Ceylon is ideal to drink at any time of day and is great for ice tea too. Drink black, with a little milk and sweeten to taste.

A good middle of the road Ceylon. As usual with teas I havn’t tried before, I brewed 12oz. enough to make a tumbler of iced tea and have about 2- 4 oz left over to taste hot. Used 1/32nd tsp stevia powder (equal to 1tsp sugar) to sweeten the hot and 1/8 tsp stevia in the iced. While it was nothing stellar, it was a decent tea. Others have said it was “dusty” and I can see what they mean after tasting it though I would say more earthy than dusty. Slightly bitter at the time and temp i prepped it at, but I like a note of bitterness in many of my teas.

I enjoyed the taste quite actually. No, nothing special, but makes for a fine cup if processed correctly. I’m not one to use any additives (sugar, milk, etc.), but this tea certainly didn’t require it. It did taste rather dusty…dusty shouldn’t have a negative connotation, however. It can be nice at times. Personally I wouldn’t drink it more than once a day. But per day it really isn’t bad, especially if you were to use it only per week.

I really dont care too much for this tea. Its easily astringent if barely overbrewed and a very dusty tea with alot of broken pieces that fall thru the strainer.Overall I wouldnt bother buying this again, doesnt compare in quality in any respect with their loose leaf lady grey,earl grey or prince of wales. Lipton is actually cleaner tasting in my opinion.

Pretty smoky and kinda bitter. I only steeped it for about 2 1/2 minutes, so I think it should have been okay. It works as a nice break during the day, but its not something I would buy. But since I have a tin of it, it will serve it’s purpose for the time being. You’ll probably like this if you’re more of a tea purist…I usually take mine with a bit more fruity flavoring.
