Normally I am a coffee drinker in the mornings, but in the evenings I usually switch to tea. I will sometimes enjoy a flavoured tea, but a standard black tea always hits the spot, sometimes with a bit of honey and sometimes not…
This week I was sent a box of Dilmah Ceylon tea to review.
Dilmah Ceylon tea is a single origin tea that comes from Sri Lanka (formerly called “Ceylon”). They claim that the tea is very fresh, unlike many other “blended” teas on the market. They also claim it to be “the finest tea on earth” because of the freshness and the single source for the tea.
I must say that after trying out the tea I was very impressed. The tea has a nice full flavour and a pleasant aroma. It is very smooth and manages to avoid any “sharpness” of flavour.
One of the things that I enjoyed the most about the Dilmah tea was that it was not bitter and did not leave any aftertaste. Some of the cheaper “store brands” of tea often suffer from that.
The Dilmah tea was very easy to enjoy without adding any milk, honey or sugar because of the nice clean flavour. I will very likely be purchasing Dilmah tea in the future, once I’ve worked through my bulk pack of tea from Costco …
