Dilmah Exceptional Leaf Berry Sensation, 20 Tea Bags, 1.41-Ounce Boxes

A high grown single region ceylon tea in fruity harmony with strawberry, raspberry and blueberry. The complex of flavors come together in a perfect berry marriage and offers a pleasingly light and fragrant tea. Can be taken hot or iced.Some years ago, Americans drank mainly ceylon tea, the world’s finest. Today, most brands are a multi-origin blend that is a mix of teas from several countries. Dilmah, new to the U.S, is the number one brand of authentic, garden fresh, single origin ceylon tea in over 98 countries, so it is fresher, richer & full of flavour. Discerning tea drinkers will recognise the difference in the very first sip. Packaged in Sri Lanka, within days of picking fresh leaf in the tea fields maximizes freshness, the key to antioxidants in tea. Founder Merrill J. Fernando is the most senior master tea taster today and his face appears on every pack of Dilmah tea, as his personal guarantee of the quality & freshness of Dilmah. Merrill & his two sons Dilhan & Malik (from whose names the brand name was coined) offer aficionados a truly different experience of tea. Ordinary teas have abandoned the centuries’ old “orthodox” method of manufacture for the fast track “CTC” (cut twist curl) process, to meet demand for a quicker brew from tea bags. This has sacrificed the character & real taste of tea. Dilmah stands firmly by traditional tea making methods, which explains why Dilmah tea tastes so different. Dilmah is the world’s first truly ethical tea. It is the only international brand name owned by tea growers. We pack our tea shelf ready, right where it is grown. Earnings therefore remain in Sri Lanka for the benefit of our workers.

good but generic fruit-flavor tea

I admit I bought this because it was on sale (only $9 for 6 boxes!) and because I’d read generally positive reviews of Dilmah teas. It seemed worth trying, anyway. It’s a pretty good tea with a generic fruity flavor to it that isn’t identifiable as anything in particular — the label says strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry flavors. I’m guessing it makes a good iced tea although I’ve only tried it hot so far. I’m sure I’ll finish up the carton but probably won’t re-order this since I really prefer my fruit teas with more distinctive flavors.

Nice tea

The tea bag has a very strong scent of berry, but the tea itself does not. That can be good or bad depending if you really like berry =P. I think it has just the right hint of berry. Overall, I am very pleased with the taste and the value.
