St. James Estate Pekoe Ceylon

The chunky, broken-leaf style of this Ceylon black tea selection yields a bright, coppery cup with classic high-grown flavor. The aroma is fragrant with hints of lemon and cedar. Those hints join a nuance of Burgundy in the rich, full-bodied liquor. A smooth finish completes a great cup of tea. Wonderful hot or iced.

This is a medium strong tea, fairly bitter, with an overtone that's difficult to describe. It's almost like the bergamot from an Earl Grey.

Superb and underrated

This is one of my favorite teas. It has a bold, raisiney quality which I’m always seeking in Ceylon teas, especially Uvas . The first time I had this tea was 20 years ago or more and had bought it from Harrods in London. It is full of distinct character, which shines through milk. Optimal brewing time would be 2 to 3 minutes.

I have traveled to Sri Lanka, so it has a special place in my heart. I'll have to say this tea is a little bitter for my taste. It is not boring, so if you like it real and with a punch this should do it for you.
