Ceylon tea: tasting notes
Ceylon black tea is one of the country’s specialties. It has a crisp fruity aroma reminiscent of citrus. The tea is grown on numerous estates which vary in altitude, thus the resulting difference in flavor of the leaf.
The name Ceylon Tea is legally protected by The Sri Lanka Tea Board. Only the tea grown, entirely manufactured, and packed in Sri Lanka can bear the Lion of Ceylon logo. However, if the content is 100% Sri Lankan, importers can still legally use the name ‘Ceylon Tea’ on their own packaging.
Ceylon tea makes for delicious full-bodied “breakfast” types of tea, that can be enjoyed either with a splash of milk or unadorned.
