After being highly disappointed by the English Afternoon Tea of the same brand, this was a pleasant surprise. Again, very fine dust/fannings in the teabag, so I wasn't expecting much.

When I brewed the tea though I tasted an astonishingly complex, gentle Ceylon with a distinct high-grown character reminiscent of teas from the Nuwara Eliya region. Light, smooth, delicate, little bitterness, but a fairly rich aroma. I recommend brewing for four minutes with boiling water--the tea does not become too bitter with this length. Without a doubt the best Ceylon I've ever had in a teabag.

I could not find this tea listed on the company website. Has it been discontinued? I was served it very recently at an event.
