This is the only single estate, pure Ceylon that is strong enough to be called a Breakfast tea. Excellent flavor and bold, crisp finish. Brews best with 8 oz hot water for 3 minutes.

From the Dimbula area of Sri Lanka, this is one of Dilmah's best offerings, many times better than their standard English Breakfast tea and one of the best bag teas I've tasted. Very flavoursome, malty and a splendid example of the style. Now my preferred teabag of choice.

This was not what I expected; a very smooth English breakfast tea. Very full-bodied and mild, more sweet than bitter. Creamy, and a bit bland flavor-wise.

Aroma is unusual...the dominant quality is vanilla and caramel, but in those subtle ways that pure teas exhibit these sorts of qualities. Slightly flat tasting.

I found this tea pleasing to sip in small sips, but unsatisfying when I drank more at once. Overall it struck me as weak.

$3.00 a box if you buy in bulk seems pricey for a tea of this quality. I think this tea is more expensive if you buy it retail; I've never seen it for sale in retail though.
