It would not be a proper lesson on tea without sitting down and discussing the origin of tea. Where is it grown? More importantly where can it grow?
This morning I grabbed a Pure Ceylon Black Tea from Dils Tea/Tea Packs USA from the box.
A vanilla flavored Sri Lankan black tea steeped into my cup this morning from Mackwoods Tea.
This morning I plucked a Pure Ceylon English Breakfast Tea from Dils Tea/Tea Packs USA from the pile.
In my cup this morning is a Pure Ceylon Earl Grey from Dils Tea/Tea Packs USA.
Today’s cup is a Ceylon Lemon Tea from Dils Tea / Tea Packs USA.
This particular tea is very peachy. The flavoring is notably stronger than anticipated, though you could smell it through the packaging.
This year’s World Tea Expo is my 3rd trip to this event. I’ve appreciated the opportunities to learn and meet new people each year. I’ve made friends and contacts from every corner of the world and every continent save for Antarctica. The events and sights from this first day of the expo are similar to those from the past two years. Full of energy, vibrant colors and effusive scents tantalizing for everyone here. Read more to learn more.
I enjoy a Sri Lankan tea from time to time. From a Ceylon Silver Tips to a subtle orthodox black tea, some of the most interesting new teas today come from Sri Lankan farms. This FBOPF Extra Special from New Vithanakande which I picked up at the 2010 World Tea Expo is a stellar example.
Teatulia sources direct from Bangladesh and is a true patron of the Kazi Tea Estate there. Sustainable and single garden sourced, this black tea is nutty and every so slightly smoky.
