From MlesnA

The tea makers of the Kandy district prepared this special tea by combining a few very tender buds with the well twisted wiry BOPs to adorn the appearance of this special grade of tea which produces a coloury thick strong cup of tea, ideal as an afternoon beverage with or without milk.

Martin got around to reviewing this tea before I did – and I completely agree with his note. This is an okay tea but nothing special, and definitely reminiscent of an English Breakfast blend.

It’s smooth, pleasant and bright, although I found that the tannin notes and malt are dominating the aroma more than the flavour. But then, I only brewed for 3 minutes to drink it without milk.

I also found some bitterness on the back of my tongue at the end of each sip. It’s subtle though and doesn’t detract from the overall experience.

Taking pictures for the blog in winter is hard. I’m out of fresh flowers from the garden, so I made do with a little fox pot plant and matching face mask: https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/mlesna-kandy-tea-review/

Not sure if exactly this one, as tea bag from Izzy is saying just Kandy Tea. Thank you, not all are bad.

This one, is nothing amazing. But not a bad cup. It is just too simple — because of tea bag I suppose.
It is nice and fullbodied black tea, without any flaws, and after 4 minutes steeping pretty much strong. Some may add milk, but not me. But as of flavours… well I think just tannic and malty, quite a common combination, bold and brisk. Luckily not a bitter cup.

I asssume this is the region where are sourced leaves for English Breakfast teas, because this tea highly reminded me this blend, but something was lacking. But English Breakfast is a blend, so it makes sense it isn’t exactly that.
