Ceylon Sonata is simply solid, flavorful and smooth with just the slightest hints of something sweet and citrus with a whisper of something floral. I accidentally over steeped my second cup of this and was delighted to find that it held up perfectly and it didn’t have the bitter qualities that many black teas of lesser quality will reveal if you overs steep them. Very little aftertaste even the over steeped version. This one doesn’t quite reach the heights of the Himalayan Mountain Tips black but this one is right up there. This may become your perfect everyday tea.
Small dark leaves bring forth a wonderful tea liquor. Both in looks, aroma, and taste. Another black tea that needs to be explored by tea adventurers.
