Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon35 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Mar. 23rd, 2017
For me, afternoon caffeine inevitably means insomnia, so I've spent some effort trying to find a decent decaf. I've found a few decaf green teas and Earl Greys that are drinkable, but I've yet to find an unflavored black tea that's worth the trouble. Despite being the most expensive decaf I've tried, Tea Forté's Decaf...Read Full Review
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 7th, 2017
This tea has a pleasant slightly malty flavor. It's a solid black tea best for when an energy jolt is needed, yet it's also possible to relax and enjoy it (along with, perhaps, some other relaxing activity -- such as reading). As always with this brand, the quality of the tea leaf appears high.Read Full Review
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 17th, 2017
One of the most aromatic teas yet from Teakruthi, this tea had a beautiful fragrance, light and fresh, suggesting malt. The leaf is also very pretty, with silvery tips mixed in against a mostly-dark background. I got excited when I opened the bag and saw and smelled the leaf!Read Full Review
Upon brewing the aroma gets much more ...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matale, Sri Lanka (Dimbula)88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 14th, 2017
A light and elegant tea that I'd drink for a quiet break. Oolong-like.Read Full Review
The beautiful and wiry dry leaf has the remarkable aroma of mint candy, creamy and suggesting of sweetness, not a smell I've ever encountered in a pure tea before.
Brews up a cup that is surprisingly subdued. Clean and light, but only a subt...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matale, Sri Lanka (Dimbula)91 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 10th, 2017
This is one of those transcendental black teas that somehow manages to be both warming and cooling in the same sip. Eminently satisfying!Read Full Review
All of Teakruthi's teas have been aromatic, but none explosively so until this one. I opened the bag and there was this burst of fragrance...first a sweet one that was hard to d...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 4th, 2017
I agree with Alex that it has flavors reminiscent of a Darjeeling -- a smooth black tea with slightly raisin-like notes. It would make a very interesting basis for sweet tea (brewed strong with plenty of sugar, then chilled with ice) as made in the southeastern U.S. I found that brewing the tea a bit strong didn't hurt...Read Full Review

Feb. 2nd, 2017
I very much like this tea, it is one of my favorite "base" or "default" Ceylons that is sold by any major tea company.Read Full Review
Before steeping, the leaf is aromatic and has a pleasant malty aroma, like an Assam but less fruity.
Flavor is crisp. The cup is very aromatic, mostly malty but with light roasty/toasty notes. ...

Jan. 31st, 2017
This was remarkable, it was like a smoother rendition of a Darjeeling first flush. I found it hard to brew but once I figured it out, it was exquisite. The main downside I found about it, like some Darjeelings, I wasn't crazy about how I felt after drinking it.Read Full Review
Dry leaf smells fresh, bright, fruity, and suggests s...

Jan. 29th, 2017
This tea is strong but smooth -- a nice choice for a breakfast cup. The caffeine gives a boost without a buzz. I tried this tea plain first. The flavor is robust and pleasant, with an accent similar to malt. The leaves have been cut very small and fairly round, enabling a quick infusion.Read Full Review
I also tried it with honey a...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 27th, 2017
I enjoyed this smooth, versatile tea. Malt is in both the aroma and the flavor and works well with the black tea flavor. There is no bitterness and it's pleasant for multiple cups. I tried it on its own, with honey, and with a warmed mixture of honey and milk. It works well to warm them in the microwave for 45 seconds ...Read Full Review
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matara, Sri Lanka92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 20th, 2017
An exceptional CTC tea, the best I've ever had, and as complex as many hand-processed, whole-leaf teas. This one really surprised me.Read Full Review
The dry leaf is unusually aromatic for a CTC tea. The aroma is toasty and with a strong maltiness, more like rye than other grain.
The brewed cup smells intensely aromatic, and j...

The dry leaf of this consists of big, dark, coarse looking leaves that are slightly curled. There is a mild toasty and chocolatey aroma. The leaf takes up a lot of space, and you need to use quite a lot by volume to get a strong enough cup.Read Full Review
Upon brewing, the aroma is distinct, different from other teas I've tried,...

Jan. 9th, 2017
The first tea I tried from Teakruthi was excellent and enjoyable, but didn't wow me. This one immediately stood out, from before the first sip, or even just smelling the brewed cup.Read Full Review
The dry leaf has a smell that strongly suggests a savory stew. It's malty with a hint of smoke and spice.
When brewed, wow. This ...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Kandy, Sri Lanka84 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 5th, 2017
I went to try this tea first because I got the sense that it seemed the most "classic Ceylon" of Teakruthi's offerings, and it definitely delivered the character I expected. This is a little less like the types of Ceylons served in British traditions though, and more like the type of tea I find consumed in the middle-...Read Full Review

The regal, royal language on the packaging and website convey an image of heavenly bliss upon being graced with the blessing of having this tea's flavor touch one's tongue. Well, it ain't that spectacular, but this curiously named offering is fairly delicious. Read Full Review
As sometimes is the case, I got an unopened and seale...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 30th, 2016
I enjoyed this tea; it's a potent black tea of good strength, with a classic British character. One could convincingly substitute this for an English Breakfast blend. It also has a great price, and is a bit smoother than other similar teas in its price range.Read Full Review
The cup is moderately aromatic, a little malty but mor...

Amber liquor. Aroma is very mild. The taste is very mild. It would be fine for all day sipping. To my taste, milk or sugar will overpower this tea.Read Full Review

This offering has been rebranded simply, "Premium Tea". Read Full Review
It offers a rich, dark color and flavor after steeping for 5 minutes instead of the recommended 2, but that does come at the expense of quite noticeably more bitterness than usual for most black teas I've immersed that long. I'm not big on bitterness, nor c...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 31st, 2016
This was yet another tea I had the opportunity to sample from a variety pack in a hotel. I have never seen this brand for sale in the U.S. It was good, considerably above-average for a simple black tea bag.Read Full Review
A bold and strong tea, not particularly distinctive or remarkable, but good. Aroma is malty with hints of s...

I have no problem with Ahmad teas and the Ceylon is about as basic a full-bodied black tea as you can get. Better hot but OK iced as you can add juices, fruits or flavorings as you wish. Inexpensive.Read Full Review
Smooth, easy to drink and as Alex says - a "classic" cuppa tea.

I liked this tea and found it very interesting, it wasn't a favorite at first but it made me write and think a lot, and I found it grew on me. I especially liked this tea's ability to evoke interesting imagery and memories from my childhood with its aromas. Many of the Ceylon teas I've tried over the years have been s...Read Full Review

A dark and rich tea with smoky notes that were unusual for a Ceylon.Read Full Review
I've tried other Ceylon teas from Kenilworth, and this is not only unlike any other tea from this estate or garden, but unlike any other black teas I'm tried from Sri Lanka. I found it interesting how different this was from other Kenilworth teas,...
Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Uva, Sri Lanka73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 5/5
Feb. 14th, 2016
A potent, robust tea with a distinct wintergreen aroma that comes out more some times than others. A bit sensitive to brewing conditions, and not for the faint-hearted, but good if you want something strong, especially if you drink tea with milk. I served this to a friend who likes strong Irish Breakfast tea, and she...Read Full Review
