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 astringent, especially if you brew it more strongly.

Relatively inexpensive too. A good option for people who want a fairly typical Ceylon of above-average quality.
