Ceylon Kenilworth

For some reason I ended up with a one kilo bag of this tea because it was on sale and I probably “drunk ordered” it or something but upon receiving it, I forgot to open it. I then went to live in Côte d’Ivoire for most of 2010, found it, and thought I should bring it along as good tea was in short supply there.

Next to my yellow fever vaccination, this was probably the best thing I ever did while living in the tropics. You’re presented with a wonderful, full-bodied cup of Ceylon. While the aromas still aren’t the strongest or most distinct at times, the body is fantastically round in the mid palate and presents a generous buttery quality to it.

Pairings: Fresh tropical fruits like pineapple or mango. Anything with olive oil. Not good for sweets however.
