How i got it: Bought It (Basilur’s “Leaf of Ceylon” Assorted Pack)
Experience: The fourth tea in the “Leaf of Ceylon” pack, this one maintains a little similarity to other Basilur teas like Winter Tea and Dimbula, but i’d say Ruhunu is better from the beginning. In the aroma side, I can sense toffee, caramel, vanilla and cream, creating a very enjoyable mix. On the other hand, the taste is dominated by caramel and vanilla notes, while the flavor of a more classic Ceylon appears almost to the end of the sip. Mild intensity, smooth and relaxing character. I’d say that’s hard to imagine a tea like this is not scented… but i saw again the envelop and realized that Basilur did it again: they added caramel scent. But that doesn’t make this tea less great. Indeed, this is how Lipton’s Caramel Truffle should always have been. Really good.
Would i buy it again?: I’m looking forward to have this blend again in my cupboard. The answer is clearly ‘yes’
