Link to Ceylon Green

Dry leaf:

– It is an attractive dry leaf with whole, twisted leaves

– The dry leaf has a light earthy, woody aroma

Infused tea:

– The tea cups out a pale green liquor with a light earthy aroma

– It is a smooth, medium-bodied tea. The flavour of the liquor is centred on earthy and vegetal notes. I pick up straw-like flavours with light smoky and sweet (honey-like) undertones


– Infuse this tea with 80C water for two to three minutes. You will get two infusions

– This is the third green Ceylon tea that I’ve tried in the past year. All of these teas have had a consistently good flavour. They remind me a lot of green Darjeeling teas, Chun Mee or Chinese gunpowder, so I would recommend this Ceylon green if you like these teas. It is a smooth tea that is ideal for everyday drinking



Retail price: 100 gram pouch for £5.95 / 125 gram caddy for £8.95 / 500 grams for £20.80


About teaxplorer

I grew up in the Midwest of the US and was introduced to tea at a very young age - unsweetened iced tea, that is! It was not until my early 20s, when I was seeking a lighter alternative to coffee, that I took tea drinking to a new level. I still remember my mother suggesting that I try putting milk in a cup of black tea (something that actually sounded a bit repulsive at the time, but I gave it a go). I quickly became tired of supermarket tea and started ordering teas from shops and companies all over the US. Throughout my 20s and now into my early 30s, pursuits in higher education studies, work opportunities and marriage have given me opportunities to live in the UK, Canada and Germany and travel around the world, which has sparked an even greater interest in tea and the culture of tea. This blog is my outlet to discuss my love of tea and show off some of my photos. All images and opinions on this blog are my own, unless stated otherwise. I retain copyright on all photographs, but please do not hesitate to contact me at if you wish to reproduce any of my images. Likewise, if you would like me to review and photograph any teas for you, please get in touch. I would be happy to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and I hope you return many times! Happy drinking! Drew B (@teaxplorer)
