bailylogoIf you read very many of my tea reviews, you will know that I not only enjoy fancy green and white teas throughout the day, I also start my day with a pot (or two) of a good old fashioned pot of black tea. So when I received samples from Baily Tea, I was excited that one of them was a box of black breakfast tea.

One of the first loose leaf teas I tasted, many years ago when I was first becoming a tea fanatic, was a black ceylon. It was perfect for my untrained mouth - simple, light and refreshing. I've never lost my enjoyment of ceylon tea and Baily Tea tea's are 100% Ceylon.

Baily Tea was established by an experienced team, with decades of experience in growing, sourcing, packing and exporting some of the world finest teas. Their goal is provide 100% pure, Ceylon tea fresh from Sri Lanka.

When I opened my box of Breakfast tea, it smelled so fresh, especially compared to the tea bags I usually resort to as my inexpensive morning tea. The leaves were very small and broken with several shades of dark brown. It is a small broken leaf (BOP) but looks very pure with no stems and some flecks of gold.

Though broken leaves are not considered quite as high class as full leaves, I do enjoy them because they create a nice full bodied tea. I use a 4 cup teapot, and mesh strainer. I used 2-3 teaspoons of tea and fresh water that was brought just to boiling. I found that I could steep this tea anywhere between 4 and 6 minutes without it getting bitter. The stronger the tea I wanted, the more tea I put in the strainer and the longer I steeped it.

It has a great flavor - very clean and fresh. I couldn't detect any maltiness or smokiness and it tasted like pure ceylon tea. It was a bit more towards the orchard fruity flavor. It took milk and sugar very well. Some ceylon teas are too light to add milk, but this one was strong enough for both.

I have to add that I have a very picky husband who also drinks a cup of tea each morning. He doesn't like to change the flavor of his tea very much, though he's found on whole leaf ceylon he likes. But I talked him into sharing a pot of tea one morning and for few weeks, we both drank Baily tea. If he will give up his regular teabag, this is a tea well worth drinking!

This is a great tea for anyone who enjoys black, unflavored tea. You can brew a light cup of tea or a strong bodied pot of tea. It goes well with any breakfast foods, and was thoroughly enjoyed in our house.
