You're right, a good Ceylon makes an excellent Iced Tea. I went with Ceylon Koslanda Estate OP Organic blended with SpecialTeas House Assam. Turned out pretty awesome.
That reminds me, last year In Pursuit of Tea had a fantastic Ceylon, best Ceylon I've ever tasted. I just know this because they served it at an Organic restaurant called Blue Hill
located on the Rockefeller Estate. But alas I haven't been able to find out which IPOT Ceylon it was, and last time I got Ceylon from IPOT it was nothing special. Oh well, maybe I will email them and see if they will divulge the info...
