Commercial Description

Ceylon teas in this leaf style have become a staple in our catalog, and are becoming increasingly popular. The long, pointed leaves are well-made, yielding a liquor with notes of caramel and dark raisins, with subtle chocolate aromatics. A very pleasant tea which can be enjoyed with milk or plain.

Brewing Instructions: (from Upton Tea Imports)

2¼ g/cup, 212ºF, 4-5 min.

The first time I made this tea, I brewed it too long (5 minutes) and it was really strong, and too bitter, but when I brewed it for 3 minutes, it was just right. I often like my tea really strong and I have to brew it for a long time. This tea is good. It tastes a lot like other Ceylon teas I've tried, which I usually like. Not very remarkable to me. I added cream and sugar.

Another very good black tea from Upton Tea Imports, above-average for Upton's Ceylons, which I tend to like less than their Indian black teas. Middle-of-the-road black tea character, but very well-executed.

This tea is broken into small, wiry pieces of already small leaf, which unfurl upon brewing. Brewed as instructed, brews a very dark cup.

Complex aroma. Malty and strong like an Assam, but with a fresher, lighter character. Some suggestions both of grape and raisin, and some chocolatey tones. Can easily be brewed weaker or stronger to suit different tastes.

Easy to brew, I'd imagine this tea would please most black tea drinkers.
