I tried. I really did. More/less tea, hotter/cooler water, longer/shorter steep times. Okay, so I didn’t try all 24 combinations of those variables — I had a sample pack after all — but I think by now I’m competent at making a good cup. Nevertheless, this tea turned out weak or bitter for me. On the weaker side, I thought it was a very nice weak tea, with hay notes. I hope others have better success with this one.

What is it about Ceylon teas? I tried this one recently and was completely underwhelmed, which is the same reaction I’ve had to every other Ceylon tea I’ve tried. Am I missing something or are their teas just not very exciting? Well, there are lots of other teas in the world. I don’t feel obliged to spend time on these.

I see from your profile that you like strong black teas, so Ceylons might indeed be flying under your radar. I would try them again sometime after a stretch of hot weather when all you want are green or white teas, chilled even. When the weather cools down a bit, you’ll find one slightly drizzly morning that you’d like a good cup of milky tea, and a Ceylon should taste just right.

This, like most Ceylon teas, just doesn’t do it for me. I carefully followed Upton’s brewing directions (1 tsp/3 min/212°) and came out with a tea that was mildly tannic, mild all around, and with no aftertaste to keep me interested. Even sticking my nose deep into the gloopy mass of freshly steeped leaves didn’t give me much of an impression. Nope, I’ll pass on this one. Perhaps it has redeeming qualities, but I’m not finding them. Might a bit of milk help?
