drank Nilagama Estate by Dilmah
10 tasting notes

Brews up dark, smells like fresh moss and rain.. although that could be because I’m from the Pacific northwest and I always turn to a strong black breakfast tea. A little astringent as it cools but not overly so. Perfect for pairing with milk and sugar for cozying up. Also perfect piping hot straight black on the go for a morning wake up. A really strong basic tea.
one of the better bagged Black teas I’ve had.

Flavors: Apple Skins, Maple Syrup, Wet Moss, Wet Wood

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I’m not a tea snob. Just a tea enthusiast bumbling around trying anything new. I try not to discriminate about tea types yet because I’ve not yet had the highest grade of anything, just bagged teas. So far I love black teas and the furthest I’ve ventured into green tea is a basic organic bagged green, various floral combinations which I love, especially jasmine,and bancha. I also love floral, fruity, herbal and medicinal teas. Haven’t tried any un flavored oolongs worth talking about. I haven’t tried white tea, pu-erh, yellow, or purple.

On my bucket list of black teas:
Tanyang gongfu, zhenghe gongfu, bailin gongfu (the fujian reds) jin + yin junmei, keemun, dian hong, yin de hong, jiu qu hong mei, tibeti, nepali, Sun moon lake, munnar, kangra, nilgiri, Darjeelimy

I also can’t wait to try a white silver needle tea.
