Details

5 starsReview by TerraBella
I like strong, milky tea in the morning and this is absolutely the go-to tea for someone like me. I make it very strong and add whole milk. This tea has enough flavor to stand up well to the butterfat in milk; but even after brewing it for 8 minutes does not become too rough or tannic. It is wonderfully comforting in the morning. It also works well for me as iced tea, however, as noted above, I like it strong and do not add any lemon or sugar to it when I make iced tea. It would make a wonderful chai, also.

This is one of my three fave teas. I find the UVA to have a perfect aroma and color, almost a bit floral if you don't steep it for too long. It's like Shangrila in the morning but almost makes for a nice mid-day tea, since it's not too strong. (Posted on 2013-06-20)

our favouriteReview by Kevin and Lise
We have tried several loose black teas since our "conversion" from tea bags, and we keep coming back to this one for its smooth but distinctive tea flavour. We look forward to having it every evening! (Posted on 2012-11-20)
Wonderful!Review by Betty - Murchie's Team Member
Eleanor describes this as "a hug in a cup", and I must agree! This tea has a beautiful aroma and colour, but what got me hooked is the wonderful flavour. Smooth, clear and strong, Ceylon UVA is an excellent cup of tea! (Posted on 2012-09-16)
