drank Ruhunu by Basilur
1104 tasting notes

I needed a bold and pure black tea today afternoon, as in the morning I had no time to drink any tea (blame my dentist, not me!) and then I had swollen mouth and had no mood to drink anything but water.

Anyway, I took this tea from Izzy though again, as a Basilur I am sure I had it before. Anyway, thank you! I have last one left to make face-to-face comparison with same region tea, but from MlesnA. I am pretty sure I know the winner already, but whatever.

This tea, after four minutes steeping is indeed a bold black tea, which is quite malty, but as well quite sweet (read: no, or low bitterness) and I notice nuts as well. Mostly in aroma than in taste and pretty much not sure which ones. Theris is some tannic note showing that it is pure tea and no additives added and I liked it, indeed. Low grown Ceylon teas seems like a good daily-drinker teas, I am trying to remember Wild Monsoon tea from teakruthi but unfortunately it is already 4 years and I wrote no notes back then. I recall some nutiness, but if it was Wild Monsoon, I am not really sure about.

Well, into further research of southern Ceylon teas!

This sounds lovely. Our local source of Basilur goodies has at least temporarily dried up.

What a shame gmathis! If you need some tea in particular, write me a message — I have a good source for them. A direct Czech distribuor https://www.caje-mixtee.cz/vyrobce/39/basilur/ :)

I’ll ponder on that! Last week after cleaning up my “big bags” assortment (sorted by category into labeled tea chests, even), I resolved “no more new tea until fall,” but I’m weak!

Haha, I know that feel! I said to myself “no more new tea” as well, but subscription. And well, I am so often about to place some orders, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Luckily for my wallet and my sanity!

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
