I posted this one in TeaDay today, but I thought I would post here too since it is really quite an interesting tea. A few days ago the Poll/Topic of TeaDay discussion was going back to your TeaRoots. I was thinking Lipton's Bags but really it was any Ceylon. Funny I think I mentioned searching out a really nice Ceylon, when here under my roof, I had one all along. And this is a real beauty.
It is from Imperial Teas in the UK. Their site states: "Grown from the foot of Mt.Lavinia, Sri Lanka's highest point, up to the Rambodda Pass, Pedro is Ceylon's highest tea factory. This unusual and rare Ceylon is reminiscent of a good first flush Darjeeling with its yellow cup and fresh yet soft taste. The leaves are slightly open, well processed with portions of green leaf. A good example of Ceylon's potential to produce more complex charactered teas."

Very mild, quite a unique flavor! Reminiscent of Darjeeling yes, but low astringency, quite unexpected for an Orange Pekoe. I highly recommend this for any black tea lovers searching for a bit of variety. Very nice.
