From Dilmah

Low grown (upto 1,000 feet above sea level). Heavy, robust and deep in colour. In the style of Cabernet Sauvignon!

The expressiveness of a good Cabernet Sauvignon can be experienced in this dark brown tea. It tastes round, full, almost muscular, and juicy, with elements of ever so slightly sweet – spices and bayleaf. Very restoring indeed. And, like a good Cabernet, with a long, harmonious finale.

I was so astonished that this tea wasn’t in Steepster’s database, I kind of need it to function, not to say pass any exams… It arrived a few days ago, so I’m halfway through the first can by now… Along with Meda Watte and Twinings Ceylon Breakfast, the best tea out there…

I got this tea bag in “big bags section”, so it is probably quite old.

“Watte means Estate, Yata means Low” — that’s what they claim on back side of tea bags.
Low Grown (upto 1000 feet altitude)
Another statements: “Heavy, robust & deep in colour. In the style of a Cabernet Sauvignon!”

I guess it is right again (see https://steepster.com/Martin-CZE/posts/401794 ). It is heavy and robust, and very deep brown colour. But something is missing in the flavour profile. It was nice, malty tea, but somehow too strong. I like really malty teas, but here were some metallic aftertaste as well and it was quite drying and astringent.

Maybe it is age, maybe it is tea-dust in a tea bag. If I don’t have lots of black teas in my cupboard (and actually lots of teas), I would look for some Ceylon teas. Teakruthi? Probably.
