I was reaching for the Laoshan Black, but then I thought to myself, “Quit copying Sil”. So I looked around to see what I hadn’t drank for awhile, & this Ceylon was it.
I’m not a huge ceylon fan, I admit it. It tastes like tea. Just plain old tea. Like the kind we all drank when we were kids, like lipton, or something. I want to dye eggs or white fabric in it. It doesn’t have all the malty, chocolatey nuances I tend to reach for. It’s a light & refined tea, & I’m into bold & deep. Ceylon is royalty, I’m a pirate.
BUT regardless of that, this is a high quality tea with a bit of a citrus-ness & maybe a little allspice. I overleafed a bit, & I think I’ll do so from now as, as that added a little thickness to the brew.
