Ceylon Black Tea
I’m looking for recommendations on a good Sri Lankan black tea. So far I’ve tried some from Chado’s and it was amazing.
I am very fond of Ceylon teas. Here are my top 3 picks:
Blood orange black from Drink the Leaf
Sinharaja from Golden Moon Tea
French Breakfast from Golden Moon Tea
I am partial to Ceylon#1 from thepuriTea.
I second Sinharaja from Golden Moon. It has a very good flavor.
And I third it! Was thinking about grabbing some after I tried with the sample. Changed my mind on Ceylon, since all the Ceylons I ever had were too astringent for my taste.
Blood orange black is not astringent at all. The french breakfast is very mild also:) I really don’t like astringent teas.
I’m not super into Ceylon to be honest, but I recently had a tea from Kenilworth estate, and even I found it was pretty nommy. No clue about the vendor though, I honestly can’t remember.
Once upon a time I also had an Uva Highlands which was pretty awesome at the time, but my tastes have changed since then.
Thank you for the replies. Three recommendations for Sinharaja…seems I will have to try that next.
This one is fantastic… Vithakanande estate seems to be the most popular past few years
Hi there, I’m a huge fan of Ceylon Teas. They are rich in flavour compared to many other teas out there. Based on my research it is because Ceylon teas are plucked using the the two leaves and a bud technique adapted by major tea brands like Dilmah (https://shop.dilmahtea.com/). I would highly recommend the strawberry flavoured black tea and Moroccan mint green tea from there range if you’re a fan of flavoured teas like me. They have plenty of more teas that you should probably try out if your on the look for some amazing Ceyton Teas.
