"I particular enjoy the aroma of this and the bright shiny finish, so I prefer to brew it weaker than suggested. (There's just one problem with these Vithanakande teas: They make all the other breakfast teas seem a bit duller.)"
"This tea has a gorgeous leaf - silver mixes with dark brown, like snippets of thread woven through the thin, wiry leaf. The dark amber-colored tea liquor smells of dark notes of chocolate and malt, which spill over into the flavor ,along with a bright lemon tang that lingers into the finish. This is a great eye-opening breakfast tea!"
