Island Heritage from teakruthi

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matale, Sri Lanka (Dimbula)

87 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 9/10

A light and elegant tea that I'd drink for a quiet break. Oolong-like.

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...

This is one of those transcendental black teas that somehow manages to be both warming and cooling in the same sip. Eminently satisfying!

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...

The tea fell short for me. Aroma was great, but taste was flat. I steeped for 8 minutes to try and bring out full flavor, but no luck. I like a more full bodied tea, and one that I can feel pleasantly leeching into every nook and cranny. This tea didnt do that. Extremely light, and probably low in caffeine content as w...

Ceylon Orange Pekoe from Twinings

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Matale, Sri Lanka (Dimbula)

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 6/10

A classic British-style Ceylon tea. Medium-strength black tea with a fairly clean, cool taste. Moderate bitterness and astringency, little sourness. Maltier and deeper than some Ceylons.

Above average among Twinings offerings and better than what I typically expect from a tea bag. This is an example of a tea tha...

TC20: Dimbula BOP from Upton Tea Imports

37 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5 Overall: 4/10

In contrast to Upton's broken-leaf teas from Darjeeling and other Himalayan regions, I am continuously disappointed by Upton's broken-leaf Ceylons, and this one continues the pattern.

Brewed as recommended, this tea is undrinkably strong. I recommend using less leaf and a much shorter steeping time. Even then, it'...
