This tea brews up to a bright copper color. The taste really surprised me. I was expecting a robust tea and what I got was a mellow, brisk tea with floral notes. I would consider this an afternoon tea. I’m not getting any bitterness or astringency from this tea. I do get a dry feeling in the mouth after drinking. A nice relaxing tea.
Since this is unofficial Ceylon day, I pulled this one out. This is a smooth malty tea with only a touch of bitterness and astringency. It makes a full bodied breakfast tea and has a dry aftertaste. Drinking ceylon teas is new to me and I’m liking them.
