Tea Review

Kenilworth Estate, Ceylon OP1

Upton TC86. 2.2 grams steeped for 5 minutes at 212℉. Impression: OP-size dark bits, see photo. Dry tea has typical black tea scent, with spice and hints of citrus. Brewed tea scent suggests nutmeg, cinnamon, and citrus. Taste: bright, open, with some woody and brackish notes, slight body, not sweet. Moderately astringent.

Very pleasant black tea, with characteristics of both ‘English’ and ‘Scottish’ type breakfast teas.
