drank Golden Ceylon by Greenfield
1173 tasting notes

Found foil wrapped in my big bags. And Ceylon isn’t a bad tea. Even in bagged form.

They recommend 3-5 minutes steep; I did 4 minutes and honestly, it’s a bit too much.

Quite simple cup, maybe way too much. Bold and fullflavoured, but 4 minutes steep caused typical black tea bitterness and astringency. I am pretty much sure that shorter steep woin’t help much. Don’t expect any complexity. It doesn’t deliver that. Way too simple and boring even for bag.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Tannic, Tea

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

Bio

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
