I’m steeping a Ceylon OP from the shawlands estate right now. I’m doing one with a tea ball, one with an ingested gaiwan, and one with a heated gaiwan. I wanna see if the three different sterling’s all have a slightly different flavor or feel to them.
I remember I got a Ceylon from the Vithanakande estate a while back and it’s been my favorite tea by far, but I just haven’t bought any recently. I can’t wait to get some more soon.

I imagine their handpicked blacks are still worth a try, look pretty tasty
