Kenilworth Ceylon in My Cup Today

 
What tea is in your teacup today?
I am drinking Kenilworth Ceylon from Harney and Sons.
According to Michael Harney's Guide to Tea book,
this is a medium-bodied middle-grown tea.
This tea is from the Kenilworth tea estate, one of the oldest in Sri Lanka.
The twisted leaves are between 1/4 and 1 inch long.  No tips.
 The liquor is "rose brown".  The body is mellow, medium-bodied,
lighter than other teas from Sri Lanka or Assam.  
 
Did you know you can purchase small samples of various teas from several tea vendors
including online from Harney and Sons and Upton Tea Imports
The tea in the photo below is a sample-sized package.
Ordering sample packages is a great way to try different teas
without investing too much money. 
 


I agree with Michael Harney.
The tea is a beautiful rose brown color.

 
Again, I ask. What tea are you drinking today?
