I bought this because A Southern Season seems to have discontinued Ceylon Extra Fancy, our favorite Ceylon to date.

We are in the midst of Tropical Storm Hermine today and while the storm isn’t so bad for us, I have repeatedly been soaked to the skin and the cloud cover made me crave comfort food and comfort tea. Ceylon was one of our first loves, particularly low grown.

I made chicken soup and cheese toast and a pot of Ceylon. It smelled great, but honestly it fell short of the one from Southern Season. The leaves were absolutely HUGE on that one. But it wasn’t bad, just didn’t give me quite the cozy ooo-aaah feeling I was looking for. I was looking for a taste and a feeling of a time past and this didn’t conjure it.

I will probably buy a tin of Harney and Sons Ceylon and India, as it is a little stronger than this one.

Do you like Harney’s Kenilworth OP? A wonderful Ceylon! It’s one of my favorite rescue teas.

Yes, I do! I am not a fan of Lover’s Leap or Uva Highlands from any source I have tried, but I do like Kenilworth. I just assume I don’t care for the higher elevation Ceylons, and while I like Kenilworth, this one was just a bit lackluster. I don’t think it is terribly old, either.

This made me sigh “idc for high elevation ceylons”

I love Ceylon and India! Also, I made it to Tin Roof Teas about 6 weeks ago! They have a great selection! I bought a couple Keemuns, an awesome gyokuro, and a really good rooibos. Thanks for the recommendation! Have a good one! :)

Welcome back, Mike! Haven’t seen you on here for a while. Glad you found some good tea! I think I burned through 100 grams of Dong Ding in two weeks once, and their Fig Formosa is magnifique!

Thanks so much! Yes, I have to get back on Steepster more regularly again! I’ll be back in the Raleigh area in a week and a half, so I’ll definitely be visiting Tin Roof again! :) Have a good one!
