Ceylon Silver Tip EXS (12 Count Tea Bags)
Origin: Deniyaya, Southern Province (Ruhuna), Sri Lanka
Flavor: citrus, carob
The "EXS" designates the grade of "extra special” and this tea certainly is. It is rare to find a full leaf Ceylon with such tiny, wiry leaves and perfect silver tips. While many teas from Sri Lanka are known for their medium body and bright flavor, this tea brews a surprisingly dark cup that is smooth with notes of carob and fruit. It still has a bit of the familiar juicy, citrus quality but there is so much more going on.
