I love Assam and Ceylon teas so naturally this one was a winner for me! I love the packaging. The small painter’s tin is original. When I opened the tin, it was a no-brainer that this one was a nice smelling Ceylon. It smelled malty and warm with fruitiness to it.

The brew was a nice dark amber. This is a bold tea that can be tampered with to make it more or less bold. Upon my first sip, it wasn’t very bitter, but I wanted some milk with my tea. I’ve been drinking cups of milk these days! I can taste the bread-y, malt flavors with fruit undertones. It makes me happy to sip this cup! The milk didn’t really bring out any flavors but it did make it less bitter. Good tea overall! Now I am off to do my night shift!

I’m someone who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
