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 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 and that it is wonderfully mellow.
Dry Leaves Brown black leaves, long and elegantly twisted.
Liquor Kenilworth 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

Kenilworth Ceylon

Kenilworth is a wonderful Ceylon black tea, featuring large leaves and full oxidation. The especially smooth liquor has made the famous Kenilworth Garden, north of the Dimbula area, a consistent favorite with our Ceylon drinkers.

It's changed
Average Review:

I have been drinking this tea for years and noticed with the last batch that it has a smoky taste and aroma to it. I am not happy about that and I am not sure what has changed but it definitely does not taste the same. Really disappointed. This was always my go-to breakfast tea.

Basic Morning Tea
Average Review:

I've been drinking this tea for years and brewing it in a variety of ways. I think 4-5 minutes for brewing is much too long. I let the tea (the amount of which I established by trial and error) stand in boiled water for two minutes. Then pour it through a strainer into cups. Works well for me. If I let the tea steep for 4-5 minutes, I imagine it would taste like wood. But to each his own.

A Solid Black Tea
Average Review:

This is one of my two favorite black teas. I cannot understand other reviewers who talk about a "woody" taste or a vegetable, bean or snap pea taste; that would be disgusting. There is nothing in this tea remotely resembling these tastes. It's merely an excellent black tea that I sweeten a bit with a good turbinado sugar. I enjoyed it even more with a darker Asian compacted molasses sugar but I cannot find that in the USA.
