Premium Leaf Tea from Dilmah

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

65 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 4th, 2019

I'm reviewing the version of their loose-leaf "Premium" that comes in a 400g resealable plastic sack, which I got new/unopened at an estate sale. The leaves are very finely chopped, small, almost granular, as if they were part of a mechanical, one-size-fits-all process for both bagged and loose-leaf offerings. The wo...

Nov. 18th, 2016

Wow, the aroma of this white tea is amazing. Like a combination of herbs and fruit...or fruity herbs :)
The pyramid sachets contain whole long buds, and the aroma before steeping is almost as good as the fully brewed cup.

The flavor is the best of any white tea I've tried...though I haven't tried that many due to ...

Aug. 29th, 2015

I actually like this one. Extremely mild and brews up rather pale...but the flavor is perfect for a Sri Lankan interpretation of Sencha.
I do not know the region/province this one was grown in, but unless stated otherwise on their packaging...Dilmah packages only Ceylon (ie the country/origin of Sri Lanka) teas.

Aug. 26th, 2015

This was my first venture into "low elevation" Ceylon tea.
Produces a deep ruby liquor, with a very rounded and balanced flavor with light but noticeable "cocoa" in the aroma and taste. Not even remotely bitter. Balanced is a good word for this strong (caffeine-wise) single estate black tea.

Over steeping (4 ...

Jul. 17th, 2015

I did not like this at all - no matter what water temperature and brew length I used, the green tea had that oxidised 'fishy' taste. Substandard green tea.

One of my favorite Earl Grey teas that I take with me when I travel. It has such a nice aroma and clean, soothing taste. You still taste the Ceylon black tea base and aren't overwhelmed by the bergamot flavor.

Aug. 24th, 2014

Traditional unblended tea with deep color and bold flavor. 100% Ceylon. Equally nice as a warm cup to start the day, or iced for a refreshing glass throughout the day. Aroma is very subtle and the flavor not terribly complex. Just a good all around Ceylon tea.

Feb. 10th, 2014

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.

Feb. 4th, 2014

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.

Sep. 6th, 2013

Brews a hazy yellow-green color. A lot of fine, granular particles sink to the bottom of the cup.

This tastes mostly like a low-grade green tea...the ginger is weak. Nearly all tea-herb blends and herbal teas containing ginger in their name, which I've tried, have been stronger than this. The ginger is noticeable...

Sep. 3rd, 2013

Ran across this at my local Big Lots, with a price of $2 for 20 teabags, so of course I bought some. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed, in fact, very happily surprised. The tea bags are not individually wrapped, but instead come sealed as a group. The ginger flavor is mild and doesn't overwhelm the black te...

Aug. 29th, 2013

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...

Dilmah has a great line of Ceylon/Sri Lanka teas that really let you taste the different growing conditions available on this small island nation. They have single region teas (like this low grown Yata Watte) and single estate teas (like Dombagastalawa Single Estate) that really open your eyes to the variety of flavor...

Mar. 9th, 2013

To be honest, I'm not a huge Earl Grey drinker, but rather enjoy the odd cup during the hotter months. Dilmah's take on this famous tea is very good. The black Ceylon base is perfect, using its characteristic refreshing notes to mingle with the citrus, bergamot flavouring. Lovely aroma and a nice, clean refreshing tast...

Mar. 9th, 2013

Dilmah, in their marketing, make a lot of noise about the freshness of their teas due to packaging within days of picking, and with their standard "Premium" offering it really does have a freshness distinct from most of the other big producers. The Premium in truth is an Orange Pekoe and exhibits that wonder deep orang...

Jul. 1st, 2012

I found this tea underwhelming. It's not bad, but usually when someone puts a flavor on a bad, you expect a flavor in the tea. This pretty much tastes like the dilmah green ceylon with a hint of lemongrass, maybe, if you can find it.

I feel like this tea is both unique and versatile, which is ultimately why I put people should buy it. The tea is more scented like caramel and goes well with milk and sugar (despite the suggestions of the company), but is good naked as well. I think the ultimate strength is its ability to mix well with other fruit f...

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.

First off, this tea smells phenomenal. Dilmah does a great job making a fruit tea that can also double as an air freshener. As for the taste, it makes a great iced tea. The mango is strong, the tea is strong, and they're fairly well balanced. Overall, if you like mango, then you'll like this.

I love Dilmah, but this is probably one of my least favorite teas of theirs. It just doesn't have any punch like other mint teas do. Try their other teas, but don't expect much if you get this in a sample pack.

I had this tea at a Barista outlet in Kolkata. I loved how fresh & uplifting this tea was! I have green teas regularly & thought this beats all the rest that I've ever had!

I have enjoyed the loose leaf version of this tea for some time, and the tea bag version holds up well at transmitting the flavor, aroma and quality in a convenient form. I miss seeing the teas unfurl, and the color brew up but it is still very satisfying. I wish this tea was more widely available in the US. It is read...

Jan. 16th, 2011

I tend to like Ceylon greens and I also like the typical Moroccan mint blends, so I was optimistic about this one. But this tea uses peppermint rather than spearmint.

Although the peppermint aroma is toned down relative to a pure peppermint herbal tea, peppermint still dominates the aroma. The underlying base tea ...
