Koslanda – Dimbulla blend from Sri Lanka with all natural flavoring
This is a simple yet really tasty blend from Design A Tea. The passion fruit flavor is sweet and sumptuous. The flavors taste natural and almost nectar-like. It’s deliciously tropical.
The black tea base is a mellow black tea blend – not particularly stout or robust, but I don’t think that is what is needed here. A stronger tea would interfere with the balance of flavors. As it is, this blend allows me to taste the even-toned black tea and the sweet flavor of the fruit. And I like it!
I enjoyed this tea immensely as both a hot tea and an iced tea. It is refreshing and … I don’t know what it is about this tea. Maybe it’s the tropical essence, or the mellow black tea base, or a combination of the two, or maybe it’s something else entirely. But there is SOMETHING about this tea that has a very tranquil and calming effect. It’s very nice!
If you visit the website for Design A Tea, you won’t find this tea readily available as a signature blend. However, you can order this blend by designing it. They let you design your own samples, too!
