DILMAH Ceylon Cinnamon Spice Tea

Love this container!!!  And I love that this company was using the mesh bags :)  I found this tea at the discount store in Massillon, Oh.

ABOUT THE BRAND Some years ago, Americans drank mainly Ceylon Tea, the worlds finest. Today, almost any brand you buy is a multi-origin blend that is a mix of teas from several countries. Dilmah is the number one brand of authentic, garden fresh Single Origin Ceylon tea in over 90 countries. Dilmah is Single Origin, 100% Pure Ceylon, entirely grown, handpicked & packaged in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), producer of the world's finest tea. Single Origin explains why Dilmah is fresher, richer & full of flavor. Discerning tea drinkers will recognize the distinct difference in the very first sip. Dilmah is Packed at Source, Garden Fresh. Packaging in Sri Lanka, within days of picking fresh leaf in the tea fields, maximizes freshness, the key to antioxidants in tea. Founder Merrill J. Fernando is the most senior master tea taster today and his face appears on every pack of Dilmah tea, as his personal guarantee of the quality & freshness of Dilmah. Dilmah is the world's first truly ethical tea. It is the only international brand name owned by tea growers. We pack our tea shelf ready, right where it is grown. Earnings therefore remain in Sri Lanka for the benefit of our workers. Visit and to learn more.

Enjoy real leaf tea with the convenience of a teabag. The silken bags are large and diamond shaped, to allow the leaves to unfurl and brew without restraint.

A combination of Ceylon's finest produce - fine Ceylon Tea, grown at 4,000 feet elevation in the Dimbula Region in the spicy embrace of Ceylon Cinnamon. The dry leaf is shotty in appearance. In the cup, a golden brown infusion, with brightness, medium body and a sweet piquancy. The slightly woody note of Cinnamon with its pervasive fragrance is enlivening and complements the tea perfectly, adding a touch of sharpness.

Tasting notes - Tight granular brown-black with orange flecks in the leaf. Of mahogany (chestnut with red tones) in the liquor color, this tea smells and tastes of freshly ground cinnamon and hazelnuts. The sweet cinnamon flavor is strong but soon gives way to black tea flavors with nuances of nutmeg and spice.

Black tea, Flavor

I tried this tea and it was good, VERY strong cinnamon, but good.  I am not a huge cinnamon fan, so adding milk did seem to lightening the strength of the cinnamon.
