Melanie’s Teaview Snapshot
Thumbs up!"Ceylong #1 is a very smooth tea. It has really good body while not being a bold strong tea. It has a great flavor with a touch of citrus and chocolate background flavors. It's a perfect morning cup of tea, but also pairs well in the afternoon with a little something savory. It also pairs well with fruit and perfect for scones and lemon curd!"

ThepuriTea has a nice selection of black teas. Rather than offering a bunch of different blends or several different Ceylon or Assam teas, they have chosen just one special tea from each region. Maybe this is why they call this Ceylon #1.

I always enjoy a good cup of Ceylon tea and have tried many varieties from many different regions and estates. I was very pleased to find this Organic Ceylon from Sri Lanka. The leaves are medium and broken, dark brown and smell very fresh.

I prepared this tea several different ways. I made my typical morning pot of tea, as well as an afternoon single cup. I found that 5 min was the perfect steeping time to bring out all the flavors with no bitterness.

Ceylon #1 is a very smooth tea. It has really good body while not being a bold strong tea. It has a great flavor with a touch of citrus and chocolate background flavors. It's a perfect morning cup of tea, but also pairs well in the afternoon with a little something savory. It also pairs well with fruit and is perfect with scones and lemon curd!

I found that it took milk well which brought out the floral tones of the Ceylon. It also takes sugar or honey well, but neither are necessary to have a really nice cup of tea.

ThepuriTea desires to "bring unique gourmet loose leaf teas to drinkers of all types" and I think they chosen the perfect organic Ceylon for this purpose.
