My full-length review of this tea can be read here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/07/31/new-vithanakande-black-tea-from-p-m-david-silva-sons/

I really love the caramel-y notes of this tea. It’s sweet and almost creamy. Lovely notes of malt. There is also a pleasant fruit note to this that is somewhat reminiscent of sweet berries without the tartness that is commonly associated with berry. I am even picking up on some notes of raw cacao.

Robust, rich and full-flavored are not words that I generally associate with Ceylon teas but this is an exceptional Ceylon. A bold and delicious tea!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
