Tea Review: Green Tea Cigar (Kaley Tea)

Green Tea Cigar
Kaley Tea
Type: Green
Origin: Sri Lanka, Kotapola
Product Description:
Tea leaves and buds are steamed, panfried, and rolled into a cigar and fired over many weeks.
Temperature: 208° F

The dry leaf aroma is light and peppery with sweet oat notes.

The light golden peach liquor has a sweet, nutty, and green aroma and taste.

This tea was light and green throughout three infusions with more to look forward to as the leaves continue to unfurl.

Kaley Tea is located in a forested, lowland region of southern Sri Lanka, adjacent to the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a tropical rainforest and UNESCO World Heritage Site. They specialize in organically grown teas plucked from 100-year-old tea trees and hand-processed in limited batches.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
