Simply put, this is a wonderful tea. The blend is based on FP leaf from Sri Lanka's Dimbula region, harvested high up in the mountains above Colombo. For a decaf, the cup is decidedly self-assured with lovely floral notes, medium body, balanced astringency and long finish. A wonderful all-day breakfast tea that opens wonderfully with milk.
