Small leaves, some with silver tips. Straight I find this too astringent to be enjoyable. With milk, the astringent edge is muted. Tea is slightly smoky and kind of green tasting.

I’m not going to rate this because I prefer teas without additives. Mostly this note is for me to remember not to buy Ceylon black teas in the future.

Flavors: Astringent, Green, Smoke

I have that problem with Ceylon tea. Too astringent unless there’s something (i.e. milk) added to the cup. However, I prefer teas where I can enjoy them straight.

I never used to like Ceylons – same reason too astringent. Then I found the ones from Amba estate and the Ceylons from What Cha. Completely different to my tastebuds.

Low grown Ceylons are my favorite. High elevation Ceylons tend to have a high lemon edge or astringency that I don’t enjoy. I dislike Uva Highlands, but Kenilworth Ceylon is very enjoyable to me.
