221 tasting notes

One of the most terrifying teas I have ever drank! The broken orange pekoe is so broken (like my soul after drinking this) its almost powder like. The resulting infusion is incredibly harsh and coppery with a heavy malt taste. The recommended brewing time is 3-5 mintues, but I would use 1-2 minutes – any longer than that is completely insane. The upside to this tea is that it takes milk and sugar really well. If you enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with putting your life in danger, or if you like your tea really milky and don’t want to sacrifice flavour- then this Ceylon is for you. I, however, will lie awake in fear of this tea tonight. As summed up quite nicely by a a co-worker: “Stab stab stab! It will come for you in the night!”
