Thumbs up!"What a delightful black tea. It has a medium body with hints of the flowers I am able to pick up in the aroma. As an added bonus, I am also picking up brown sugar and apples reminding me of an apple pie. "

teahorsefournationsI do enjoy subscription services as you get a chance to find new teas that might not have come up on your radar otherwise. A great subscription service based in the UK is Tea Horse. I have tried a couple of the teas that have been part of the their service in the past and they have been great. They aren't accepting any new subscribers at the moment but on their website you are able to sign up to get further info when they do open up the service to new folks.

My tea today is a Ceylon which is an orange pekoe grade black tea from the highlands of Sri Lanka. The sample came to me in a sealed in a foil lined package to ensure freshness. The leaves are a charcoal black and rather large for a black tea. The aroma is grassy with a hint of caramel. I set it up to brew using boiling water and a steep time of 3 minutes.

The resulting liquor is golden brown with a light fragrance of honey and caramel. I added a bit of rock sugar to it and the aroma totally changed. Now it really reminds me of a walk through wild flowers with the variety of perfumes they give off.

What a delightful black tea. It has a medium body with hints of the flowers I am able to pick up in the aroma. As an added bonus, I am also picking up brown sugar and apples reminding me of an apple pie. This is definitely a tea that I would stock in my cupboard if that was possible. I do recommend getting on the list for when Tea Horse reopens its door for new subscribers. They put out some really yummy teas.
