I am enjoying this tea. Not as strong as black breakfast however a really good flavour and a strength I like. Interesting package!
Easy ordering and prompt delivery. Tea leaves smaller than anticipated so wonder if its broken orange pekoe but taste OK.
Really enjoyed this after a long time away from Ceylon teas. Very delicate aroma and flavour; a new favourite.Much prefer the new packaging too.
Excellent quality tea and a great taste. Well packaged aswell. Highly recommended
Patience is a virtue with this, you can’t rush the brew. But it’s worth it. Remember that Ceylon has strength without as much colour as other teas too. It’s lovely - bright, golden and delicious. I don’t know whether it’s psychological due to the name but I feel like there’s a hint of citrus in the taste.

The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.
It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.
It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!

If you don't have a fancy kettle which heats the water to different temperatures then a tip to for brewing green & white teas is to put the boiling water into the teapot or mug first and then add the tea. It will have cooled down a bit just by touching the cold teapot. That's what I do anyway...
