Taster’s Review:

I thought I had completed my series of Morawaka estate Ceylon reviews, but I came across this sampling the other day as I was sorting through my stash (in an effort to get it organized … an effort, I fear, that is futile, and yet, I continue on!)  I am happy, though, to have found this Ceylon as it is quite enjoyable.

The flavor is mild and bright, with hints of floral notes in the background.  There is a fair amount of astringency that is more tangy than it is dry.  That tangy note lingers into the aftertaste, imparting an almost citrus-y taste on the tongue.  As I continue to sip on the tea, a sweetness develops that gives the cup more of a smooth, well-rounded character, and helps to soften the astringent finish.  This particular grade of the single estate Morawaka Ceylon seems to be a bit more floral in taste than the others … assuming I am remembering correctly.

This has that brisk flavor that one might expect from a Ceylon.  It makes for an excellent choice for a lighter breakfast tea, or a mild afternoon tea.  It goes wonderfully with chocolate.  (Then again, there aren’t many things that don’t go wonderfully with chocolate.)  It also makes a wonderful iced tea, and takes additions well – try serving this with a thin slice of citrus for a glass of iced refreshment!

A very nice offering from KTeas!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
