Where to find this tea?

by Bc » Mar 22nd, '09, 21:49

New to the forum. Just tried the best tea in quite some time. It was a welcome drink at the Le Meridian hotel in Khao Lak, Thailand. The label had the number '666' on top, with the caption 'finest Ceylon tea dust' underneath the numbers. Plenty of Chinese characters too but I couldn't read it. Any guesses? I can post a photo of the package after I get home.

it's actually a huge bag with loose tea dust. no individual bags. the waitress said that you place the tea dust in a filter (kinda like a sock) and brew the tea that way. Add some kind of sugar, and lemon juice.

Do you have a photobucket or flicker or similar?

It said Ceylon and it sounds like fanning/dust. I do not know where you could find the same tea but have you tried whole-leaf Ceylons? Maybe they would taste as good :)
