Afternoon Ritual from teakruthi

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

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5

This is a solid tea. The flavor is lightly muscatel, and it's easy to brew. I used 195 F, as suggested on the package, and that seems best -- but even hotter water worked fine. I like the idea of using this for a somewhat lower caffeine buzz than a morning tea.

Colonial Mornings from teakruthi

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

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 9th, 2017

I really liked this tea -- when it was prepared just right and very fresh. It has a lovely, subtle aroma and flavor with delightful hints of muscatel, making it a stand out pure tea. However, it was easier to oversteep than others by this brand and the intensity of the first cups magic lessened a bit with second and th...

Island Heritage from teakruthi

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

The more I drink this tea, the more I enjoy it. Initially I felt it wasn't as distinctive as the other teas from this brand, but now I feel like it's simply a quite well-rounded tea. There's a subtle muscatel flavor that's nice. I feel like tea goes particularly well with food. Also, it resteeps very well.

Wild Monsoon from teakruthi

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

This tea has a pleasant slightly malty flavor. It's a solid black tea best for when an energy jolt is needed, yet it's also possible to relax and enjoy it (along with, perhaps, some other relaxing activity -- such as reading). As always with this brand, the quality of the tea leaf appears high.

Divine Highlands from teakruthi

Style: Ceylon Black Tea – Region: Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

80 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 4th, 2017

I agree with Alex that it has flavors reminiscent of a Darjeeling -- a smooth black tea with slightly raisin-like notes. It would make a very interesting basis for sweet tea (brewed strong with plenty of sugar, then chilled with ice) as made in the southeastern U.S. I found that brewing the tea a bit strong didn't hurt...

Rainforest Indulgence from teakruthi

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

90 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Jan. 29th, 2017

This tea is strong but smooth -- a nice choice for a breakfast cup. The caffeine gives a boost without a buzz. I tried this tea plain first. The flavor is robust and pleasant, with an accent similar to malt. The leaves have been cut very small and fairly round, enabling a quick infusion.

I also tried it with honey a...

I enjoyed this smooth, versatile tea. Malt is in both the aroma and the flavor and works well with the black tea flavor. There is no bitterness and it's pleasant for multiple cups. I tried it on its own, with honey, and with a warmed mixture of honey and milk. It works well to warm them in the microwave for 45 seconds ...

Premium Blend Tea from Bigelow Tea

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

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 15th, 2014

Tastes halfway between a Darjeeling and a typical black tea. I didn't like it the first time I tried it, but this time it's quite smooth. Don't oversteep it to avoid bittterness. Slightly raisin-like.

Whole bag of fannings diffuses immediately.
