I brought back a couple teabags of this from Sri Lanka as they were in my hotel room. (I bought lots of other types of tea too!) This is a good breakfast tea. I can’t say it’s more impressive than my usual choice for breakfast tea, but it was enjoyable and the first sip did take me back to my trip. It didn’t sustain flavor well through the second steeping, but I didn’t really expect it to either.

This tea was delicious! I found it in the selection basket at a cafe near my school, and I’m so glad I found it! I absolutely love how delicate the rose is and how beautifully it compliments the heavier/creamier qualities of the vanilla. I could definitely see how over-brewing it may make it taste off though, so I’m fairly certain it should be brewed at a lower temperature than most Ceylon teas (due to the delicate nature of the rose).
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Rose, Vanilla
How i got it: Bought it (Dilmah’s Variety Pack)
Experience: Second tea of five in the pack. This one has a smooth to mild aroma which follows the typical Ceylon style, only that its notes are a bit more complex than those in the standard, as usual in Dilmah. The flavor intensity goes from medium to high, and seems to have less fruit-y and caramel notes, and be more malty than a standard Ceylon. Slightly bitter notes and some astringency at the end of the sip. A Dilmah level tea – easily above the average.
Would i buy it again?: I’d say yes, given that this is the 2nd time I buy the pack, hehe
Greetings from China! Amusingly, the first tea I’m logging here is a bagged one of non-Chinese origin. I’ve visited many relatives, some of whom I haven’t seen in years, and amidst the food and chatter there has been a good quantity of tea, of course. I’m keeping a journal of the local teas I’ve tried so far, but as they would all be “unknown by unknown” on the site, I will save my notes for now and post highlights later.
This was a very decent, smooth, Ceylon-heavy breakfast blend that definitely woke me up and soothed me on a morning where I was still dealing with jetlag. It has been raining constantly for the past few days, and a hot cup of tea is just what I need. I’m looking out on the city from a loft on the 6th floor right now, and can see forested mountains in the near distance. The area I’m in is a curious juxtaposition of the natural and urban, and there is more plant life and more kinds of birds and butterflies than I’ve seen anywhere else. Looking forward to more adventures to come.
How i got it: Bought it
Experience: I saw this one in sale some weeks ago and thought “Why not?”. I’m glad I took it with me. It has a nice, mild to intense classic Ceylon aroma, with some almond/nutty notes that are present in the taste too, but in a more intense way. Very well defined and lasting taste, it seems to be less acidic than your usual Ceylon, and more deep and rich in flavor. It ends with a soft-bitter aftertaste. This tea may be offered in bags format, but I’d say it’s quality has nothing to envy to a loose-leaf’s one. One may think of it as an upgraded Ceylon Supreme. Does justice to its name. Very good.
Would i buy it again?: The price is the less enjoyable part of it, but it may very well be.
It’s not that this tea is bad as much as it’s just simply mediocre. It’s peppermint and english toffee but you can’t really sense either at first taste, and I personally cannot taste the english toffee at all, and the peppermint is very, very subtle. Dilmah’s other “Exceptional” collection teas vastly surpass this one – Rose with French Vanilla and Maharajah Reserve Assam in particular come to mind. Can’t fault it being uninteresting though, as the blend is tasty and pleasant.
