From Dilmah

Light and bright high elevation, single region Pekoe from Nuwara Eliya, 5,000 feet above sea level in the mountains of Ceylon enhanced with a touch of the uplifting aroma and juicy sweetness of Mediterranean Mandarin. The lightness of the tea is deliciously and lifted by the sweet, zestful flavour of Mandarin, one of the most appealing fruits of the citrus family. The Mandarin fragrance enhances the sensual appeal of this brew, producing an invigorating, and refreshing tea perfect as an afternoon or evening cuppa.

Orange brown with yellow reflections in the liquor, this tea immediately seduces you with its pungent aromas of ripe mandarins, bitter oranges and honey-lemon. There is a lightly caramelized flavour associated with astringent, chewy tannins.
A tea of esteem.

I was gifted with this tea, so it wouldn’t normally be something I would purchase. I am not currently a “fancy” tea drinker (but working on it!)….my tea of choice is usually a breakfast blend, which is quite sad to diehard tea drinkers, so this was my first time trying to experience a true ceylon. In the tin (a really niiiiiice tin, by the way!) I could certainly smell the mandarin….not fakey mandarin, but bright and a bit tart. It complimented the smell of the tea well. After leaving the tea to agonize for 2.5 minutes, I smelled the cup….where did the juicy mandarin go? I couldn’t smell it as much as when it was in the tin, but it was there. Once I added the touch of milk, there was just the faintest hint of mandarin. This tea is smooth. Very smooth and lighter than what I’m used to drinking. I got a bit of a bitter taste, but I am hypersensitive to even the smallest amount of bitter in tea (which can sometimes just be the tannins, I’m guessing!) and that’s why I add milk and usually some honey. Perhaps on next tasting I will try adding some honey to this tea, but I couldn’t to this cup, as my husband grabbed it, drank it and LOVED it. He said the difference was similar to two buck chuck at Trader Joes and a nicer wine. There was a smooth depth to this tea that made for easy and enjoyable drinking, even though he really couldn’t find the mandarin note either. Husband also said he won’t have any trouble finishing the tin off.


Update…..used this to make my husband’s tea this morning, and threw the used sachet into my mug to add with my usual English Breakfast decaf (hoping that the caffeine had steeped out in the first cup)….HOLEY MOLEY did it change the taste of my usual morning tea….and FOR THE BETTER!!! See what happens when you give someone that drinks “Two buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s a decent glass of wine? It messes with their budget immediately!! This tea is wonderfully smoooooooooth. In my cup this morning I could taste the slight mandarin….perfect for the morning commute. Why not have your orange juice and tea together? :) Try this tea if you can. My husband no longer has dibs on the whole tin. There will be arm wrestling later for this!

With or without honey, it’s great to cheer my morning up!
