Delicate Ceylon Green Tea from Ceylon’s Gampola District, grown at 1,400 feet elevation. This tea has an elegant appearance with long, well twisted leaf yielding a pleasantly mild liquor. A gentle brew, with yellow infusion and a slight sweetness in its finish. The large leaf unfurls when infused, to reveal a full tea leaf. An ideal accompaniment to a meal, or as a relaxing afternoon tea. Its slightly astringent, herbal character displays a touch of fruitiness and a clean finish. Tasting notes – Tightly twisted whorls of whole leaf green tea of khaki-green olive and matt green color. Infused leaf is of same color but they are full leaves. Medium bodied tea with liquor that is honey yellow with green shades. The aroma is of lightly toasted straw with a faint woody and mature stalk note.

Lovely nose and body
Unlike the other Dilmah teas I’ve tried, I love this one. The full-leaf bags brew a pleasantly nutty green tea; a nice, distinct flavor without being overwhelming. A pleasant green tea smell, as well — not overpowering but very much noticable. Tea bag is strong enough (perhaps even better) on the second brew, without much bitterness.
Delicate Ceylon Tea for Everday Sipping
I am very happy to have bought this Dilmah tea. Having been a long time tea connoisseur I can say that I really enjoy Dilmah’s teas. This tea is another example of a delicate flavor to balance out the harshness of a long day. This is the first green tea that I have tried from Dilmah, most of the others being black teas. I am pleased to say that as much as I do enjoy their black teas, I enjoy this green tea even more. The overall bouquet and taste of the tea is complex yet satisfying. Remember that when you purchase this tea that you are buying a delicate tea and I hope this review sets your expectations properly. The bold flavors that you experience from other tea manufactures are not necessarily present here.

Great item, individually sealed packages
Item quality is excellent. Has great aroma and taste and can actually be brewed twice, just remember to pull the bag out after about 4 minutes. I love the fact that each bag is individually plastic sealed to maintain freshness.
