Outstanding Ceylon Tea
March 23, 2014
I drink my tea with a little lemon. My goal was to find a tea with great taste and aroma. This Ceylon Nuwara Eliya Orange Pekoe tea is the best tea I have ever had. The Nuwara Eliya area of Sri Lanka has a reputation for great teas because of it's elevation. This tea has a light golden brown/orange color. It is much lighter in color that the lower elevation traditional Ceylon teas. The aroma is excellent. It's really evident when you pour it into a cup after steeping. The tea works well with both small and larger amounts of lemon. My wife, who prefers milk, likes the tea with just a light amount of milk. The flavor is just great. I tried the team without lemon, and it tasted great. This tea was just as advertised and it is a true orange pekoe. The leaves are quite large. If you love aromatic, great tasting tea, I strongly recommend this tea.
