Colonial Mornings - excellent choice!
I was fully satisfied after first session with this stunning tea from Dimbulla region. It was my first experience with Teakruthi but I have been so impressed by your Colonial Mornings tea that had made next order promptly to try more of your Teakruthi teas.
A brisk yet sweet morning tea!
Thanks so much for the samples, Teakruthi! Honestly, personally I usually consider Ceylon to be the most boring of black teas... sometimes they just taste like cardboard to me... so a tea shop focusing on Ceylon didn't sound great in my opinion. BUT I'M WRONG. These are unique Ceylon teas... completely disproves my Ceylon tea stereotypes. This plain black Ceylon tastes nothing like those poor quality Ceylon teas I've had in the past. The quality obviously depends on many things. Teakruthi is quality. A Twinings Ceylon is going to be very very different. I really like this one.The dry leaves are about half an inch long, dusty black with hints of pink. The fragrance of the dry leaves reminded me of a spicy tomato sauce... I had been thinking of pizza all day. Hmm. But the flavor wasn't too much like a spicy pizza sauce. I noticed almond, which is interesting because Teakruthi also mentions almond. I like being reassured that someone (anyone?) is on the same page I am, when it comes to flavor notes. There is a definitely a sweetness here. Strong enough with a teaspoon and a half. The "morning" in the name is accurate - this is a fantastic flavor profile for a morning tea. Steep sessions can range from reminding me of a brisk Assam, to sometimes tasting like a Ruby varietal. I do love a good Ruby tea, so this tea is certainly many steps above the usual boring tastes-like-nothing-to-me Ceylon. The second steep was a little bitter and I wouldn't try steeping it so hot and so long again. That's my fault. The first steep was delectable. During another steep session, the second steep was just fine after waiting 3-4 minutes after boiling. Thank you Teakruthi, for solidly proving to me that not all tea grown in the same place can fall under the same quality. Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 15 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 3 minute steep
Colonial Morning Black Tea
Pleasant smell and flavour. Very smooth. I drank mine with a bit of honey.
The Finest Tea. Colonial Mornings
I look forward to morning thanks to Teakruthi. Colonial Mornings is the finest black tea I've ever tasted. The flavor is earthy and rich, with an inviting aroma that tempts the senses. Whether over ice with a touch of sugar and lemon or my personal favorite steaming hot with cream and sugar, it's delightful. I've tried many teas from markets and suppliers but they can't compete with Colonial Mornings or any of the fresh and flavorful teas from Teakruthi. Their service is also impeccable and delivery, directly from the plantations, Ceylon region for Colonial Mornings, is reliable and quick. Colonial Mornings is my house tea and my guests are always pleased. You simply have to taste Colonial Mornings and you'll be sure to become a faithful customer. Thank you Teakruthi!
I really enjoy this tea first thing in the morning. I love strong tea and this one is just that with a really delicious flavour. I would definitely recommend this tea.
