From Dilmah

Medium brown with tints of orange. An almost savoury taste. Fruity, exotic perfume with a “balance” in taste from the ample tannins, strong but not brooding. A tea that is delicate, radiant and elegant.

High Grown 4600 feet above sea level An estate of 460 hectares, Somerset is in the famous Dimbula Valley on the Western slopes of Sri Lanka’s Tea Country. Tea was first planted here in the 1870s after the flourishing coffee industry was destroyed by a leaf blight.

The liquor smells of crisp fruit and a touch of cocoa. I was expecting the first sip to leave my mouth horrifically dry but that’s not the case! It’s so smooth and ‘juicy’. There is an astringent boldness near the end but it’s not in the same league of the Wanja Orange Pekoe I’ve been drinking for the last week. There is more fruit than bitter rind to this cup although rind still pokes through. I think there is a sense of creaminess too.

All in all, it’s a lovely evening cup. I’m not sure if I want to try this with milk or not as it’s delicious on its own. I will add that this is more of a sipping tea than a gulping one. It becomes more nippy and less smooth in bigger mouthfuls.

This tea makes me want to snack on grapes, oranges, and dark chocolate forever. Thank you, ToiToi! I’m sorry I put off trying this sample for such a long time. It deserved better from me.

This may very well be my favourite black tea I’ve ever had (most of what I drink are Japanese greens), shocking for an “off the shelf” tea. Every cup shocked me with it’s quality, absolutely perfect accompaniment for a good read after dinner. I haven’t been able to find it since I moved back to Canada from Australia.

I got this tea bag in “big bags section”, newest tasting notes are 7 years old…. so it is that old?

I don’t know how to you make formatting here guys, but I will do my best even without it.

“Watte means Estate, Uda means High” — that’s what they claim on back side of tea bags.
Another statements: “Full-bodied, rounded & refreshing. In the style of a Pinot Noir!”

And although it is apparently only dust in the bag (unfortunately, not a loose leaf version), it was exactly what they wrote on the bag. It was full-bodied, round and refreshing.

Yes, it was very mild in taste, quite tannic and malty, but with cocoa notes somehow. And even those flavour are considered quite rough – it was rather mellow. To be honest, it reminded me bit Yellow Label from Lipton but without that artificial extract from tea leaves. But this tea don’t deserve comparing with Lipton.

It was fresh even ages from produce. Foil bags indeed make even old tea tasty… it doesn’t rot or just weak at all.

Indeed tasty tea, full-bodied. I just really enjoyed this morning cup.
