This is a smooth, crisp Ceylon with a rich flavor that holds up well to milk and sugar. Pretty generic tasting Ceylon, but that could just be because I don’t drink enough Ceylon to be able to distinguish between varieties. The aftertaste is quite strong also. Overall, a decent tea that is quite enjoyable tonight.
After submitting an order today from Upton (which was filled with lots of goodies including Rose Congou, Chocolate Earl Grey, East Frisian BOP and a couple of samples!!!), I had a hankering for this tea. I actually like this a bit better today than the first time I had it. Robust, rich and delicious – I almost forgot about my new tea order for a second.
I’m reaching for this tea yet again this morning. I don’t usually like Ceylons this much, but I also usually find them a bit too weak for my liking. Well, Steepsterites, this is not your typical whimpy Ceylon. This one has some heft to it that is quite satisfying with a bit of milk and sugar.
I’m finishing up the last of this sample and it is very biscuity today! It is a decent Ceylon, but not one to go on my shopping list. It just isn’t bold enough for me!
