Different Vithanakande
Peter (Connecticut) 4/1/2019 10:10 PM
The Vithanakande estate black teas are typically just a bit malty, with that typical ceylon taste, along with a hint of nuttiness when brewed right. The OP I usually buy from the estate brews to a reddish brown color after about 4 minutes. This one, while certainly good, replaces that nuttiness with a woody flavor. This changes the taste significantly, but to be fair a tea with this many gold tips usually does taste woodier. It's a good taste but very strong, and it stays in your mouth a long while.

My new favorite tea!

We came to the store a couple of weeks ago to get our usual teas, and the woman there kindly pointed out this tea - never heard of it, much less able to pronounce it! Was expecting "nice" tea, but this is a really great tea, wonderful flavor. Thanks to the staff at Elmwood for expanding our world (and our vocabulary)!
