Taster’s Review:

What a surprising Ceylon!  I have been surprised by Ceylon teas in the past, but, I don’t think I’ve been this astounded by a Ceylon – it’s blowing me away!

The leaves are probably the largest Ceylon leaves I’ve yet to see.  They are long and twisted, and they unfurl slowly (they were not completely unfurled after my first infusion, and insisted that I infuse them a second time!)

The flavor is sweet with hints of fruit in the background.  It isn’t a tea that I would classify as robust, but it does have a sense of strength to it.  There is some astringency to this cup, but not much.

While this rather exceptional Ceylon isn’t as bold as say, an Assam or Keemun might be; instead, this is a smooth, well-rounded cup that is sure to please the most discerning palate.

The second infusion is even better than the first, in my opinion.  I find that the fruit tones have mellowed a bit, becoming softer, sweeter and smoother.   I highly recommend indulging in a second infusion with this tea!  It’s well worth the effort.

A very satisfying cup of Ceylon!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
