From Dilmah

A combination of Ceylon’s finest produce – fine Ceylon Tea, grown at 4,000 feet elevation in the Dimbula Region in the spicy embrace of Ceylon Cinnamon. The dry leaf is shotty in appearance. In the cup, a golden brown infusion, with brightness, medium body and a sweet piquancy. The slightly woody note of Cinnamon with its pervasive fragrance is enlivening and complements the tea perfectly, adding a touch of sharpness.

Tight granular brown-black with orange flecks in the leaf. Of mahogany colour (chestnut with red tones) in the liquor colour, this tea smells and tastes of freshly ground cinnamon and hazelnuts. The sweet cinnamon flavour is strong but soon gives way to black tea flavours with nuances of nutmeg and spice. An enticing and glamorous tea that will enkindle your palate.

I received this as a free sample from Alice.com (Love Alice! Love, love love Alice!) The sample was 20 teabags, which ought to be enough for me to form an opinion ;) The bag is one of the generously sized pyramid mesh types, and leaves plenty of room for the leaf to expand. The leaf is very black, and fine, but not too fine – no visible dust or finings. The cinnamon scent is intoxicating and almost floral. The tea brews up very quickly – within a couple of minutes it was dark and very fragrant. The color is a deep brown red, with almost no sediment – one of the reasons I dislike bagged teas is that the leaf is generally so dusty that there is a lot of sediment in the cup. The tea is a rich, sweet, straightforward Ceylon with a hint of astringency. The cinnamon adds warmth to the cup without overpowering the tea – it would take some doing to overpower this tea. The cinnamon tastes like real cinnamon – not cassia, not some plastic flavored cinnamon flavoring, but real, honest cinnamon.

I am definitely going to take advantage of the coupon Alice is giving me for this tea.

This is a very serviceable flavored black tea in a bag. This has become my go-to bag when I need a quick cup of tea. The scent of this tea is utterly amazing- strong cinnamon, but not overwhelming. I could sniff the packet all day. Flavor is good for a bag. Most important to me is that the cinnamon flavor is present, but not so overwhelming that it is too sweet. All in all, a quality tea, great for when you need a bag.

I love to have it hot in the evening. After a busy day. Add a little brown sugar to please yourself with an exotic sensation.
