Commercial Description

Brisk and balanced, this estate tea from Geragama, Sri Lanka is simultaneously refined and robust. Delicate enough to be enjoyed unadulterated yet hardy enough to stand up to milk and sugar. On its own the cup is laden with a deeply satisfying caramel and raisin sweetness, accented by citrus and underpinned by a bittering cocoa base.

Another tea I ordered at Copper Cup in Lancaster, PA.

Rich and malty, full-bodied, but not overly tannic, with just the right amount of body and fruit. Aroma of malt and dried fruit. I find Kandy tends to produce teas that have a classic British character, and this tea is no exception...it tended a little more towards the malty and fruity side, slightly more Assam-like than most teas from this region, but otherwise similar.

Steeped twice: I drank one cup in the cafe and took the used leaves home and brewed them a second time. I know I really like a tea when I take the spent leaves home from a cafe so it doesn't go to waste. It resteeped very well; the second cup was just as good as the first.

Passenger Coffee doesn't list the weight for sale on their site. It's a huge pet peeve of mine when companies don't do this...what are they thinking? So I can't really comment on value. But this is a good tea, for value I'd give it 5 stars if it cost under $10 for a 1/4 pound, 4 stars if it cost up to $20 and any more I'd say it's overpriced.

This was good and I'd drink it again, but if you're ordering in a cafe, because they're the same price when ordering a cup, I'd go for the Yunnan Silver Needles; it was more of an exceptional tea.
