Ceylon Black Tea

Tasting Notes: Malty, Red Wine

The long, dark, wiry leaves of this complex and mysterious tea bring a bold and unabashed strength only found in a premium long-leafed Ceylon. Its infusion produces a deep, malty fruit flavor akin to the experience of sipping an aged Chianti red wine. Full of subtle spices, fruit flavors, and the assertive robustness characteristic of a powerful black tea, this admired Sri Lanka-born classic holds its own.

Savoring the Experience:

Did we mention that this tea is strong, not for the faint of heart? Well, that is why this tea is perfect with a bit of milk and sugar. Add a bit of dark honey for a malty sweet treat. You can even make a nice black tea latte by foaming up some milk and adding a touch of dark brown sugar.

Fun Facts:

The island of Sri Lanka used to be known as the island of Ceylon. Makes sense that the tea would be named after the island of its origin. Located off the southern coast of India, this teardrop-shaped island is famed for its tea more than anything else. An incredible variety of landscapes produces an incredible range of teas. With flavors that range from mellow and floral to bold and winey. The bolder Ceylon teas tend to be more popular, and this Ceylon fits the bill.
