Morawaka Ceylon FBOPF-1 from KTeas

Morawaka Ceylon FBOPF-1 from KTeas

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Black

Where to Buy:  KTeas

Product Description:

A typical Low Grown variety, this Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe Fannings-1 grade offers somewhat fewer tips with the leaves than in the FBOPF. You will find in your cup a full-bodied liquor with a distinctive sweet taste.

Taster’s Review:

This is no ordinary Ceylon!

The aroma of the dry leaf was rather unimpressive.  I could smell an earthy note, but beyond that, there isn’t that much to tell of it.  But once it was brewed, the earthy tone developed into a somewhat flowery note with a sweet, caramel-y fragrance.

The bouquet of the brewed tea is indicative of the flavor that awaits.  Sweetness!  I have often used the term “burnt sugar” to describe a sweetness, however, I don’t think I’ve encountered one tea that defines that burnt sugar taste better than this one.  This has a burnt sugar caramel undertone, and a bitterness that ties into the burnt sugar flavor and gives it a nice roundness.  There are hints of fruit and flower in the background, and a fair amount of dry astringency, readying the palate for a sweet, currant-like aftertaste.

A very enjoyable, deliciously different Ceylon.
