From teabento

A unique, delicious hand-made black tea with a wonderful aroma and pronounced taste from a tiny tea garden called Amba, in the hills above Ravanna-Ella Waterfalls in the Uva district of Ceylon. Full bodied, smooth and complex with floral, citrus, toffee notes and malty undertones.

Dexter passed this unopened packet along to me in her surprise box of tea sample gifts. Thank you, Dexter! (Come back!)

Beautiful Ceylon veering in the direction of Darjeeling with those lovely rich caramel raisin notes. And citrus, of course.

It has been making a tired challenging day much better.

And thank you, teabento, for your generous and delicious samples!

My samples from Tea Bento came yesterday and i am SUPER excited! I figured i’d start with the Ceylon since i’ve found that it typically gets a bad rap as folks tend to equate it with your base red rose sort of tea. Let’s be clear, i ALSO picked this one because it’s an elephant on their site.

A question that i do have though, is whether the larger bags have more packaging in line with how the teas are presented on the website? With the bento boxes, the teas are in great resealable bags with the tea information/steeping times add as an additional tag. What isn’t present is the elephant! So really just curious if the animal/images on the website are just there for the site, or if they’re part of the larger overall brand/marketing outside of the sample sizes.

Anyway, the tea.

This is a really nice ceylon. It’s not my favourite – that goes to one that i think it was nicole, shared with me. But this is a delightful tea. It’s smooth tasting and there are a few citrus notes to this that make it a ceylon for me. I’m happy i’ve got more to play with to see how the taste changes with various steepings. I’d pick this one up again i think, depending on tea bento’s other offerings :)


Hi Sil, thank you for reviewing our ceyla. The elefant and other animals as well are currently only designed for the website. But we will think about adding them on the labels in the future ;)
With Ceyla you can make a very delicious cold brew. Here is how:
5g tea in 700ml water, add some fresh raspberries, chill in the fridge for about 3 hours or less, add some honey and enjoy.


i think it would be awesome to have them on the packaging as well but that’s because i really love them :) thanks for the tip on the cold brew!

Oh definitely put them on the labels!! That would be so cool to have the cute critters look at you every time you go for your tea :D
