narienkenilworthWhen I'm looking for what I call a "nice cup of black tea," Ceylons are always top on my list. They pair well with just about any menu. Ceylon is the former name for Sri Lanka and the Kenilworth Estate is Ceylon's most popular estate. As this was my first time tasting tea from Narienteas, I did a bit of research on the company-it's a fairly new company (2008) with on-line retail only. This tea from Narienteas is a fine example of a Ceylon tea. I was impressed and will definitely be trying more of their teas in the future.

The broken leaves are a nice reddish brown when infused (however, there are bits of stem included, no tips here). The aroma is strong and inviting. The liquor is a nice deep reddish brown color like the old "Indian Brown" from the crayon box. The tea is of medium body, is smooth, and malty. It finishes with a slight "bite" on the back of the tongue. I first steeped this tea according to their directions- 2-3 minutes. If you like your tea a bit stronger go for 4 minutes. This tea would hold up very well with milk but is excellent without. A fine representation of a Ceylon tea. Excellent value for the price.

Find this and many other top-quality teas at Narien Teas, Inc..
