From Twinings

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.

I have this tea almost every day. Adding orange blossom honey really helps bring out the citrus notes.

This is the first time I have had this one. It is the bagged version. I don’t know, it seems kind of thin. I was expecting big bold and malty. The aftertaste is kind of fruity. It is a bit drying. It does remind me of Charleston Plantation black tea.

This weekend has freaking sucked.

Made a cup of this before my giant meeting, and added a spoonful of lemon juice and honey. Here’s to hoping like hell that it helps me kick this cold.

I’m a Ceylon hound. I sniff it out wherever I go and although I love the dark maltiness of a pure black Ceylon tea, the Twinings blend is definitely that with a modest bolt of citrus. This, to me, is a pleasant evening tea to help settle a full stomach. Don’t bother with milk – just add honey or a light sweetener. My nightly ritual has become more interesting with a bag of Twinings Ceylon Orange an hour before bedtime. When it comes to the caffeine content in this blend, the bark is worse than its bite. I have no problem nodding off to sleep at night.

This tea isn’t terrible, but I wouldn’t buy it again. I liked it well enough hot, with or without honey, but it didn’t stand out to me. I’ll probably leave it at my parents house just to have a bit of variety in tea. On a side note, the only orange I noticed was maybe a hint of orange blossom in the smell once brewed.

I had this one years ago and have not been able to find it locally again. One of the best orange pekoes I’ve tried.

Again I must repeat, Twinings US tea bags are made for 6 oz cups…not the huge mugs most people use to brew tea, so if it tastes weak to you that may be the issue.

The Ceylon Orange Pekoe was fine. I tried double and triple bags with the tea and it was basically the same. I expected it to be more citrusy, but I wasn’t disappointed with the flavor.

And I’m always enough milk to make it ‘milky’ looking.

Overwhelming bitterness. Worst Twinnings tea IMHO.

It’s fine. I grew up with Red Rose, so if I’m buying Orange Pekoe at the grocery store, odds are good that I’m sticking with Red Rose. In fact, drinking this tea only serves to make me crave a cup of Red Rose. Meh.
