From Upton Tea Imports

A bold-leaf selection from Uva, which produces a full-flavored, dark cup. The finish is sweet, with notes of raisin and ripe fruit. This versatile tea can be brewed both iced or hot, and can accommodate milk if desired.

Thanks to JasonCT for a sample of this tea.

I don’t have too much experience with straight blacks, but this one isn’t bad. It’s definitely got some nice mouthfeel and it’s not too heavy. I put some soy milk in it, but I think I actually prefer it plain.

Adawatte is a classic Ceylon and all that. Steep it less than four minutes and you’ll get an excellent cup. This one and Kenilworth OP are taking turns in my mind as the characteristic Ceylon, and lately Adawatte is impressing me slightly more.

The one non-standard taste I’m picking up in this one is Necco wafers. You know those things. I think this is more like the brown ones, the ones that are supposed to taste like chocolate but really don’t. Upon Googling, it looks like they changed their flavors around last year, so just for the record I’m talking about pre-2009 wafers.

A high grown Ceylon tea, that I had hoped would be a little brighter than it proved to be.
I found it to be on the light side, with rather smokey, mineral qualities to it.
Very nice quality leaf for the price, and certainly tasty.

This is one of my favorite night time teas that I get from Cha Yi here in beautiful downtown Gatineau (Hull). It is not as full-bodied as some, nor as dark but with its own distinctive notes of citrus.
