Ceylon Tea is back!

After years of waiting to sip fine Ceylon teas again, I found this wonderful estate tea here at Happy Earth. This is my second order. The flavor feels fresh yet rich, a reminder of teas friends brought back from Nuwara Eliya years ago. For my own taste, I brew this at 190 for 2.5 minutes to avoid any astringency as I drink the tea without cream or sugar.
