Very smooth, medium-bodied cuppa with straightforward, easy-drinking appeal. Clean tasting though it has a subtle malty fragrance and flavor coupled with a bit of sweetness, not quite raisin.

I’m doing a head to head tasting of this with the “Ceylon Pekoe” from the same company. It is also a smooth, woodsy tea but not quite as rich as the Pekoe and there is a really distinctly different flavour that I’m having trouble identifying. It’s kind of floral, and kind of grassy or grainy? Anyway, it’s very nice but again, I don’t think I love it enough to want to buy more of it. Luckily the sample packages have enough that I can give it a couple more tries before making a final decision. :)

Brilliant tea. Tastes like the regular Ceylon black, but with an extra forest flavor. This flavor eludes me, as I can’t quite recognize what it is. It’s refreshing and forest-y and I feel as though I’ve tasted it in an asian dish long ago. Maybe someday I’ll have a moment of clarity and find out just what it is.

Very nice tea, really special. I love the design of the tins as well. Looks real original.
