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!
