We’re trying out various Ceylon teas from TeaSource—this is the third from this order we’ve tried. My problem with Ceylons so far is that they strike me as very basic teas, like something you’d get from a Lipton teabag, without the personality of darjeelings, assam or Chinese black teas. My aunt who I share these with on the other hand likes basic, unflavored teas, so you’d think she’d favor those. This is her favorite so far, one she said she’d like to see again, and on that basis it may get reordered someday. As promised on the label it’s smooth and mellow—although to me nothing all that special and is getting a relatively high rating more for my aunt’s liking of it than my own tastes—I can say though it stands up very nicely to milk.
