Ceylon Sonata Black Tea
Solid! Flavorful but very smooth. Just the slightest hints of something roasted and something floral. I accidentally oversteeped my second cup of this and was delighted to find that it held up perfectly — it didn’t have the bitter qualities that many black teas get if you oversteep them. Very little aftertaste (even the oversteeped version) — another plus in my book. For me, this doesn’t quite reach the heights of the Himalayan Mountain Tips Black that Our Home Tea sent me — that one was more complex, bolder, with some brighter flavor notes that I really enjoyed. But this one is right up there — a perfect everyday-drinking kinda tea.
