I enjoyed this tea but thought it the most overpriced of Teakruthi's offerings so far.

Dry leaf smells quite good, like a Chinese tea, a little vegetal and slightly floral, suggesting of a slight edge. It reminds me of chun mee both in smell and appearance, but is more vegetal.

I like this tea but it can get ove...

This tea was multifaceted and intriguing. I also found it resembled aged sheng Pu-erh in certain ways.

Interesting wiry leaf, some pieces broken but most not. The smell of the dry leaf is mild but very pleasant and, in spite of its faintness, quite complex, resembling high-quality Chinese green teas a bit, but als...

An excellent green tea of top quality, definitely among the best green teas I've sampled to come out of Sri Lanka.

This was my second Ceylon green tea that I tried from Blackwood Estate; the first was from Simpson & Vail. It was certainly recognizably similar to the other tea. I liked this one slightly better; it ...

Idulgashinna Ceylon Green Organic from Single Origin Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 9/10
Oct. 18th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is brisk, citrusy, and invigorating, there are also notes of fresh grass. Once the leaves are brewed there is vegetal aroma that mixes with the citrus.

The taste is delicious! Honey sweet with lychee and orange blossoms. A very sweet tea for one with a vegetal aroma!

Organic Idulgashinna Estate Ceylon Green Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

Jan. 11th, 2013

A dark-colored green tea with a brisk character, reminiscent of gunpowder or chun mee. Produces a bold cup that is more flavorful than aromatic.

Aroma is mild and herbaceous, a little dusty and suggestive of smokiness, and flavor is quite sour and a little sharp. Has a strong cooling quality. If it were summer, I...

Ceylon Blackwood Estate Organic Green Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

Jun. 6th, 2012

Simpson and Vail informs me that Blackwood estate is part of Idulgashinna estate, if you're familiar with that one (I am not).

This tea had a similar flavor profile to other Ceylon greens that I've had: it was similar in some ways to Chinese green teas, but with a darker character, and more vegetal, but slightly les...

Jun. 16th, 2011

I tend to love Ceylon green teas from Upton. This one, however, was strange. There were some dusty tones that I normally only encounter in shu Pu-erh. Highly vegetal, and not in a pleasant way. Almost undrinkable hot. I let it cool to room temperature and some fruity tones, reminiscent of yellow raisins, which I f...

Ceylon Forest Green from Shanti Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 7/10
Dec. 15th, 2010

The liqueur is a light golden color. It smells soft and subtly sweet. There is a hint of being fermented a little bit extra long. The smells are subtle overall and not very strong. The taste is a lot like the smell but stronger. The first thing I notice is that it is subtly sweet riding in the middle tone while the dee...

Jul. 12th, 2010

The liquor is a pale honey/copper color and has some similar smells that were in the dry leaf, which was a savory smell. The wet leaf really had more of a black tea smell to it, which was reminicent of a ceylon tea to me, smelling tanin like and a tiny bit malty. The tea is silky and light.It really does not stay aroun...

Feb. 1st, 2010

I have started to see enough of a pattern that I can at least suspect that I tend to like green teas from Sri Lanka.

The dry leaves of this tea are whole and very full, slightly curled, and dark green, and a few of the leaves have a reddish tinge. The dry leaves have a tobacco-like smell.

The cup is richly aroma...

Dec. 17th, 2009

Lemony, tangy, almost like you added lemongrass or lemon flavoring. This was an interesting departure on one of my favorite types of green tea...it's recognizable as the style, but not in the way I expected. No smokiness, but still fresh tasting, although slightly less crisp. Much less bitter and astringent, and doe...
