Ceylon Orange Pekoe from Simpson & Vail

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

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 15th, 2021

The aroma is a medium woodsy. Dark, twisted leaves. The liquor, after a five minute steep, is a very dark brown. Flavor is good, with a mild spicy after taste. This tea will be added to my regular rotation. Easy to sip all day.

The aroma is mild with a bit of spiciness. The liquor is a very dark brown. Strong flavor, with a smoky after taste that stays on the tongue. A good 'strong' tea.

This tea is mild all around. The aroma is slightly fruit. The liquor brews to a gold/amber. Flavor is a traditional Ceylon. Would probably be eclipsed by milk or sugar.

Nice honey hued liquor. Smooth taste. Classic Ceylon. I think milk or sugar could be added without over powering this tea. Ceylon fans should give it a try.

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.
