Ceylon Breakfast Black Tea from Wegmans

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

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 27th, 2013

Dry leaf is unimpressive looking, relatively small broken pieces of orthodox black tea, but to me it has the most pleasing aroma of all of Wegmans offerings of pure black teas. Unfortunately, the brewed cup did not taste quite as amazing as the dry leaf smelled.

Upon brewing (4 minutes as recommended), produces a r...

Ceylon Kenilworth OP-1 from Teavana

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

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 22nd, 2013

This is a nice traditional black tea. It tastes a lot like your standard black tea from a tea bag, but better. This tea is full bodied with medium tannin, a medium malty flavor, and only slightly astringent. This tea is good for a minimum of 2 steeps. This really could be an everyday tea for a lot of people. I find thi...

This tea is good. It's not too bitter. It tastes a little fruity. I added cream and sugar.

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 2nd, 2013

Yet another outstanding black tea from Arbor Teas! My initial reaction of "this is another good black tea, not the best, but really good" changed about 3/4 of the way through my cup! While this tea didn't pack as much of a punch as the Assam Black, I loved the subtle and smooth flavor and fully appreciated the velvet...

This tea has a sweet aroma. It reminded me of olives at one point. I really like the flavor. It's full, rich, and interesting. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 16th, 2013

It would have been easy for me to overlook this tea if I had only brewed it once. Smooth and light, this tea has a classic high-grown character. But it took multiple steepings and some experimentation to discover how good this tea was at producing multiple cups. Among the best at making multiple infusions of any bla...

I love this tea. It has a rich, full, smooth flavor, but at the same time clean and not too heavy. I steep it for 6-8 minutes and drink it with milk and sugar.

I tried a sample of this tea and liked the taste, which was stronger than most basic blacks I've had. I really appreciate the reasonable prices of Ahmad Teas, and plan to be buying and sampling more from them soon.

My favorite pure black tea from Ahmad Tea, and my favorite tea from any company in this price range.

If I had to pick a single example of a classic black tea, I would pick this one.

Like most of Ahmad's teas, I find this one offers exceptional value: solid quality at a very low price. It is versatile and easy to...

This Ceylon is full of flavor. It is an excellent value for the money and I could happily drink this daily. In fact, I plan on ordering a pound of the damn stuff next time around. This tea makes me grin!

I don't think this tea is particularly bad, it just isn't as good as their other teas and you can probably find a better quality ceylon for cheaper. The taste is crisp and clear and it does the job right, but I'd stick with the fruit teas.

This tea grew on me. I got this as a sample and ended up just having to pay the shipping, so 2 oz for 3 dollars AND a 20% off coupon (which sadly has expired). The banana flavor lends itself well to the crispness of the tea and if you want something to eat shortbread cookies with, I can think of very few things that ...

While this tea is a bit pricier than your average supermarket decaf black tea, it's incredible flavor is well worth the extra $$. Many supermarket decaf teas have an almost washed out flavor compared to their caffeinated counterparts, but not this delicious Ceylon decaf from Harney and Sons! I highly recommend it for...

Mar. 26th, 2012

This tea is among the best decaffeinated pure black teas that I've tried, whether loose-leaf or from a tea bag.

Full-bodied, dark, strong but smooth and somewhat mellow. There is a vaguely keemun-like fruitiness.

I find it interesting that Novus also carries a caffeinated version of this tea, it allows me to com...

Mar. 9th, 2012

A friend brought me this from Europe.

Flavor is a bit dull: not much bite or kick, but a heavy, bitter aftertaste. Malty for a Ceylon. If I had to guess, I would probably have guessed that this was an Assam rather than a Ceylon. However, it wasn't particularly exciting as either.

I was also surprised to find t...

Feb. 13th, 2012

This is a Ceylon whose character is somewhat in between the high-grown, lighter Ceylon black teas and the richer, maltier ones. Strong but smooth, with tones of rice, wintergreen, and malt. Very rich red-brown color.

Although this tea is initially quite smooth, the aftertaste is rather tannic: bitter and astringen...

The first time I made this tea, I brewed it too long (5 minutes) and it was really strong, and too bitter, but when I brewed it for 3 minutes, it was just right. I often like my tea really strong and I have to brew it for a long time. This tea is good. It tastes a lot like other Ceylon teas I've tried, which I usually ...

Another very good black tea from Upton Tea Imports, above-average for Upton's Ceylons, which I tend to like less than their Indian black teas. Middle-of-the-road black tea character, but very well-executed.

This tea is broken into small, wiry pieces of already small leaf, which unfurl upon brewing. Brewed as instr...
