Rediscovering an Old Friend

I brought home a package of Kenilworth Estate OP Ceylon Black Tea last weekend. It’s a tea I’ve enjoyed in the past, being one of the best known Sri Lankan estates, but for me, its been quite a while since the last time I tasted this tea.

I was almost amazed by this tea. I expected it to be good, but I wasn’t prepared for how good it is. The liquid is a golden/copper color in the cup. The aroma is fresh and clean, slightly woodsy, slightly floral. The distinct flavor is bright, very clean, and pleasant, sip after sip; that is, six cups worth of sips! There is very little after taste, something I prefer in a good tea.

If you want an excellent tea to serve at breakfast or afternoon tea, this is worth a try!
