Ceylon Kenilworth from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Nov. 1st, 2017

A rich,warming, complex black tea. I liked this a lot, although there are other black teas from Murchie's that I like more, like the Scottish Breakfast or Yunnan, in a similar or lower price range.

I have now tried at least five Ceylon teas from Kenilworth estate, all from different companies. This one tasted most ...

I very much like this tea, it is one of my favorite "base" or "default" Ceylons that is sold by any major tea company.

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. 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-...

Classic morning pot of tea if you like your tea strong enough to stand up to milk, yet not bitter or tannic. I used to fuss with making my own 'English breakfast blend' in search of the perfect combination of boldness and color -- hate weak, pale-colored tea in the morning -- but without adding bitterness or a smoky or...

Very fruity. Fairly bitter. Pretty generic overall, a lot like many black teas I've tried.

Apr. 29th, 2015

The aroma is mild, and very typical for a British-style black tea, on the malty side for a Ceylon, and much more complex than most other Ceylons. I found it is easy to overlook if brewed weakly, but really comes alive if brewed more strongly.

This tea is quite slow to infuse; I like steeping 5 minutes or more, and ...

Nov. 12th, 2014

This tea has a nice fruity aroma. I like just smelling it for a while before actually taking a drink. I want to say that it reminds me of purple grapes.

The taste actually has a good degree of character. It's a mix between chocolate and citrus notes, and that's without any sweetener. It's also quite smooth, with ver...

English Breakfast Decaf (Kenilworth Ceylon Decaf) from Novus Tea

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Kandy, Sri Lanka

63 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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...

Nov. 27th, 2011

A classic Ceylon. Aroma of the dry leaf is fruity, but this doesn't come through in the brewed cup.

Brews a dark but surprisingly clear cup. Earthy, with savory qualities. Aroma suggests potato and wintergreen, a hint of malt and cocoa. Astringent finish. Not the smoothest tea, and particularly, with more astri...

I like this tea. It has a mild, but full flavor. I think I like all of the Ceylon teas I've tasted. I added cream and sugar.

The aroma of this tea is wonderful. And the flavor is very clean and brisk, just not the most complex.

This is an insanely strong tea. I find the brewing instructions to be way off...following them it's undrinkable. I tried using about half as much leaf and brewing for 1 minute and it was about right. Steep it any longer and it becomes painfully astringent and also quite bitter.

When brewed briefly and with little...
