From Monsoon Mountains Tea Company

A beautiful FBOP Grade. Mellow and relaxing. Full of plums , raisins, passionflower notes and chocolate. Raindrenched and sundrenched, this makes a beautiful warming tea for winter and iced tea for summer. Best with lime rather than lemon.

Today we have up New Vithakanakanda estate FBOP. I started by brewing this in a clay pot, 3 grams for 150 ml water at 205 for 3 minutes. I got a somewhat dark clear caramel colored liquor. I get aroma’s of raisins and chocolate, and a little bit Cacao or a raw chocolate. I do find competition or western style brewing works a bit better with Darjeelings and Ceylon tea.

Tasting this I get many of the same flavors as aroma, but there is a slightly stronger citrus note as well as plums. There is also a dark bittersweet chocolate flavor now. Its actually kind of hard to describe it. Now the information on this says it goes well with lime, and though I usually take my tea straight I can see this, it does seem like the flavor profile would work well with this.

In conclusion, this tea has a rather complex flavor profile, makes a great tea for going with an afternoon snack.

Recomended
