Masala Chai from Adagio Teas

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 9/10
Oct. 31st, 2013

This is one tasty chai. The blend of spices leans to the warm flavors and aroma of ginger and cloves, rather than to the cinnamon and cardamom sweetness which is present but not dominant. The Ceylon Sonata black tea which is the base, is a wonderful Kenilworth Estate tea that has citrus and spice notes that shine throu...

Very impressed with quality and value of this tea. Ahmad teas continues to surprise me with nice flavors and aromas that more expensive brands often miss. I first came across their Darjeeling, which has become a staple when I visit my local Indian Market, and have since had the chance to try a variety of their other te...

Ceylon (Ceylon Orange Pekoe) from Ahmad Tea

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 7/10
Oct. 11th, 2013

Amazed at the quality of tea for a great price. Nice blend that brews up consistently with a pleasant aroma and flavor, showing off the characteristics most sought in Ceylon/Sri Lankan teas. Bold, smooth and slightly astringent. Brisk, bright and two good steeps from the leaves. Classic!

Ginger Flavoured Tea from Dilmah

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 6/10
Sep. 3rd, 2013

Ran across this at my local Big Lots, with a price of $2 for 20 teabags, so of course I bought some. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed, in fact, very happily surprised. The tea bags are not individually wrapped, but instead come sealed as a group. The ginger flavor is mild and doesn't overwhelm the black te...

Yatawatte Single Region from Dilmah

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 8/10
Jul. 24th, 2013

Dilmah has a great line of Ceylon/Sri Lanka teas that really let you taste the different growing conditions available on this small island nation. They have single region teas (like this low grown Yata Watte) and single estate teas (like Dombagastalawa Single Estate) that really open your eyes to the variety of flavor...

Ceylon Supreme from Dilmah

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5 Overall: 8/10
Oct. 20th, 2011

I have enjoyed the loose leaf version of this tea for some time, and the tea bag version holds up well at transmitting the flavor, aroma and quality in a convenient form. I miss seeing the teas unfurl, and the color brew up but it is still very satisfying. I wish this tea was more widely available in the US. It is read...
