Our Review
Kenilworth is one of the oldest tea estates in Sri Lanka. Halfway up the Central Highlands, Kenilworth is considered a " Medium Grown" tea so the weather there is moderate; not as hot as down in the plains, but not cool like in the peaks. Kenilworth is in the western tea section, known as "Dimbula". This estate is always a joy to visit. Everything is neat and tidy, unlike most tea estates. All of this helps to explain why the estate makes full leaf tea that is wonderfully mellow.
Dry Leaves Brown black leaves, long and elegantly twisted.
Liquor This Ceylon brews up a lovely rose brown.
Aroma Sharp, bright notes of wood and warm honey.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body Mellow, and medium bodied.
Flavors The tea has rounded and gentle roasted honey flavors.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Excellent Body and Flavor
Average Review:

This tea has excellent body from the Assam and great flavor and aroma from the Ceylon. I could drink it every day with no problem. It goes well with milk and sugar but can be drunk with just a little sugar as well.

Good blend
Average Review:

I agree with the 'mellow' part of the description. The ceylon brings down the aggressiveness of the assam and adds a layer of sweetness and fruitiness that compliments very well the astringency. Great aroma of the dry leave and nice finish.

Perfect
Average Review:

Orange Pekoe perfected, with a wonderful smooth brightness that's great with or without milk. For those of us whose first tea was Lipton, this is the archetypal cuppa. It gives a nice lift and is as comforting as a bedtime story.
