A tea bag for wet morning. There was a rain finally in the evening and night, so everything is wet. I was really sleepy too, so I just picked some tea bag. Apparently last one I had of this one thus SIPDOWN. I didn´t kenw I had even something last.

Anyway, they suggest 3-5 minutes brew and I did like two and half. I don´t like really strong black teas and I found out making tea steep half of suggested time works usually really well.

Hmm, tea itself is dark brown and cloudy. I used to think that Basilur is one of the better brands. Yup, in matter of tea bag certainly is.

As it is past BB (8 months), opened as I needed the tea bag envelope to collection, so no aroma at all. Or slighlty tea-ish, like bit bland English breakfast. No weird aroma notes.

In taste it was quite similar, quite weak – yet noticable calssic tea bag black tea flavour with little notes of toffee and red grapes. But grapes were really weak. Not malty at all.

It is not a bad example of tea, certainly good for this morning – but fresher it is certainly better (I recall that grapes were more present in taste).

Have a great day everyone!

How i got it: Got a bag in a swap with my wife (part of Basilur’s “Specialty Classics” Pack)

Experience: This tea has a crisp, mild to intense, well defined, classic Ceylon aroma. Indeed, I’d say it’s more fragrant that the average Ceylon, reminding me of Dilmah’s English Afternoon. I can sense some acidic notes in its scent, too. On the other hand, it has a bold, well defined and lasting flavor, but also a distinctive smoothness (unlike other other Ceylon teas, i couldn’t sense any tart notes on it) and richness. I sense very slight hints of caramel too, characteristic of the Basilur teas, which gives it a special touch. I’d say with some confidence it justifies its OP classification. Very good.

Would i buy it?: It has real possibilities, but competition in this category is tough, hehe. Maybe i’ll go for it when looking for a good loose leaf Ceylon.
