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 1/2 minutes) gave me a nasty case of heartburn, but shorter infusion times of no more than 3 1/2 minutes was absolutely perfect for me and my sensitive stomach.
