Tea Review

Strathdon Estate, Ceylon CTC BP1

Upton TC15. 2.2 grams steeped for 3 minutes at 212℉. Impression: Tiny rounded dark bits, typical CTC appearance, see photo. Dry tea has typical slightly spicy black tea scent. Brewed tea scent is musty, with hints of bait fish and wet dog. Taste: Flat, woody, unpleasant funky notes, no body, not sweet. Moderately astringent.

I did not like this tea. This was a sample packet of 15 g. I did not finish it.
