Vanessa’s Teaview Snapshot

Options for today's tea drinkers seem infinite, as teas that combine seemingly impossible blends of fruits, flowers, candy, nuts and herbs are becoming more common. Don't get me wrong, I love teas that offer fresh new flavors and complex blends of ingredients. But every now and then, I just want a good ol' cup of tea...just standard black tea, with no frills, no bells and whistles, no extracts from an exotic fruit found only in Peruvian rainforests. Enter Mighty Leaf Ceylon Kenilworth. This is an honest tea, bearing no false pretenses. It is what it is, and that is what makes it so good. Mighty Leaf's Ceylon Kenilworth is just what you would expect form a ceylon tea...slightly fruity/floral notes on a rich and almost creamy base. I found this particular variety of ceylon to be among the best ceylons I have had. The fruity/floral characteristics were somewhat muted compared to other ceylons I have had, but this allowed me to really experience the essence of the rich and creamy base. Whereas I usually automatically add a bit of milk and sugar to my black teas, this tea was perfectly drinkable and satisfying on its own. In fact, I think that adding milk and/or sugar would have masked the tea's natural tastiness and taken away from the experience. I would have no problem drinking this tea again, and could see this becoming a staple in my tea cabinet. This seems like a great choice to start off the morning or to have as a late afternoon pick-me-up. When it comes to basic black teas, this one ranks pretty high in my book.
