This is the only single estate, pure Ceylon that is strong enough to be called a Breakfast tea. Excellent flavor and bold, crisp finish. Brews best with 8 oz hot water for 3 minutes.

From the Dimbula area of Sri Lanka, this is one of Dilmah's best offerings, many times better than their standard English Breakfast tea and one of the best bag teas I've tasted. Very flavoursome, malty and a splendid example of the style. Now my preferred teabag of choice.

English Breakfast from Dilmah

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

This was not what I expected; a very smooth English breakfast tea. Very full-bodied and mild, more sweet than bitter. Creamy, and a bit bland flavor-wise.

Aroma is unusual...the dominant quality is vanilla and caramel, but in those subtle ways that pure teas exhibit these sorts of qualities. Slightly flat tasting...

English Breakfast (Kenilworth Ceylon Tea) from Novus Tea

Style: English Breakfast – Region: Kandy, Sri Lanka

This was a strong full-bodied black tea. It didn't have much of an aroma, but I liked its taste. Overall I'd drink it again but it won't be my staple black tea.

English Breakfast (Kenilworth Ceylon Tea) from Novus Tea

This tea is really good, if not oversteeped. I steeped it for 5 minutes and it was too bitter, but then I tried it again and I steeped it for 3 minutes, and it was perfect. I usually like strong tea, and it was strong enough. It didn't have a very distinctive aroma. I added cream and sugar.

I find it a bit strange that Novus offers both a caffeinated and decaffeinated Ceylon tea from Kenilworth estate. Usually, companies do not wish to draw attention to the difference between a caffeinated tea and its decaffeinated counterpart, as the decaf tea usually pales in comparison. But, in this case, Novus boldl...

A friend brought this back from Europe for me. The caption on this tea cracks me up...'prickelndem' is translated as 'scintillating', and the combination of "typical" (which does not have the same connotation as the German "typischer") leads to a bit of a contradiction: "A typical Ceylon tea with a scintillating flavo...
