From Whittard of Chelsea

The Pettiagalla Estate is famed for its high altitude Ceylon. It lies amongst pristine forest reserves in the shade of a small mountain. The high altitude gives this tea it’s warm lingering oaky flavour, lifted by soft floral notes.

The tea is still made using antique rollers, producing a taste that stays true to how it would have been in the first Whittard shop. The elegant wiry black leaves make a red gold tea with a glorious floral aroma typical of this famous garden.

I’m not normally a big fan of Ceylon teas, but this one does it for me. There’s a certain fruitiness in the aroma that I can’t quite put my finger on, and a clean sort of autumn leaf taste, and a fruit-floral note to it. The company describes it as floral, but to me that sort of manifests itself in a lighter, fruitier sense, and less in any sort of heavy or super-fragrant way. Good.

Also, I wore a shirtdress I haven’t worn in ages today, and then remembered why I haven’t worn it in ages. It makes me look like either a nurse or a schoolgirl. Seeing how I’m not either, kind of not good. At least Gentleman told me I looked nice. He’s good at knowing what to say.
