This tea has a lower astringency with a medium boldness. The aroma is an excellent balance between the mint and pure Ceylon black. The spearmint is clean and the honey brings an extra sweetness.

This is my first tea from Dilmah Exceptional and found this to be a very nice tea. They even provide a small tri-fold brochure, stating the company’s dedication to single origin from Sri Lanka and it’s quest, along with commitment of seeing “the return of real tea.” Not completely sure of it’s proclaimed, “world’s first fully vertically integrated family tea company” and “the finest tea on earth…also the world’s first Ethical tea”, however I love how that all the profits flow back to the community as they share with their workers. Sounds like a lovely company.

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West and has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!
