This tea brews bright red, with a smooth, almost creamy feel to it and no astringency. It’s a wonderful example of a Ceylon – a cheerful breakfast tea that can be brewed strong ad taken with milk and yet I also enjoy it in the afternoon and evening, brewed lighter. A comforting, reliable tea that your guests are guaranteed to enjoy, no matter who they are. It even brews to a good iced tea. Keep a caddy of it in your cupboard (or at least a box of tea bags) “just in case”. It is a safe bet, and money well spent – the tea that will get you out of a pinch :)
This tea is a Ceylon blend, which perhaps explains why it’s precise taste notes elude me still. Oh well, just another good excuse to brew a cuppa ;)

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
