I have noticed that Low region tea are the most expensive. I talked this with a tea shop owner. I don't know why that happens.

Is this recent trend or also seen in the past?

I think it is a recent price change (last two years)

I sampled couple of years in the past. They all have lower low grown prices. 2019-2023 Low grown seems to be high.

Idulgashinna 'Blink Bonnie' Twists Ceylon Organic

This was a good Ceylon tea too. I like the smell. Tea is more yellowish than black though. But lovely taste.

I take Ceylon tea quite often, it's like a 5 o'clock thing but have not had much luck with ordering the one I used to find locally before. I think it was a st.james but very aromatic and smooth with a light touch of astringence. Have not been able to find it anymore unfortunately despite trying a lot of S.James

This one is from Teewald and it has been one of my favorite.

Where do you order ceylons?

Seems like Theemas has some St. James.
