From MlesnA

Here is a tea that will give you a bright flavoury cup with milk at breakfast or tea time. The Dimbula valley, which is around 5000 feet above sea level, produces flavoury teas during the first quarter of the year when the weather is dry and cold

One tea bag received from Izzy, thank you, and thankfully only one.

This is so basic cup. I am used to drinking teas plain and well, this tea is indeed screaming for mercy of milk. It’s so tannic, bold, strong and… boring! It’s like you got a cheap tea bag, very low-end and it tastes like that. It’s maybe a single origin, but certainly doesn’t taste like the others I have tried. This was just plain and boring. And bitter. And… nothing to write!

Luckily, I used a bigger volume of my vessel and steeped for shorter time. So it was drinkable without the milk. But completely forgettable, cheap stuff.

Would you recommend this tea? Nope, I wouldn’t. It is sold as better but actually it’s rather a great dismal. Don’t expect any complexity, it’s not here. Not even the malty or any other notes. Just a bitter and tannic cup. Finished it, and well, I was hoping for something else.

After I was mildly impressed with the single origin Ceylon teas by BOH (sachets) and Basilur (teabags) I was looking forward to trying more single origins from Mlesna.

But…. this tea sucks.

It brews very quickly into that dark peat brown tea colour and has a generic, hearty and tannin black tea aroma. It’s bold and rich with a hint of malt, but lacks a distinctive character. There’s nothing that makes it special.

The flavour is incredibly bitter – almost unbearably bitter. You need to add a lot of milk and sugar to make this tea drinkable. And I don’t usually like sugar in my tea, which says a lot about this one.

Yet, I did finish the cup and it does work well for washing down sweet, sticky foods. Pancakes, waffles, cake, etc. So it gets a middling score for that, but I can’t wholeheartedly recommend it. I’ll use the rest of this tea in baking.

Pssst. Martin. I sent you this tea but I see you haven’t logged it on Steepster yet. Can I say sorry in advance?

Haha, don’t worry. As I said, some teas are good, some are worse… I had this tea today in a hand today; but decided for Kandy instead. Not a good sign that you need to add sugar though. Who know, maybe my impressions will be different?
