drank Kenyan Black by Justea
519 tasting notes

After receiving this in the mail from the crowd funding campaign (I don’t remember which one, kickstarter? indiegogo?), I finally opened this and made myself a cup (at…2am, yay!).

Added milk and sugar as is my wont with black tea. A bit more of each because I’ve heard that good Kenyan tea can be a bit strong on the astringency and needs a bit extra and I’m glad that I did because this is simply a very very good cup of tea. Probably not the best it could be because I reheated it in the microwave once because I forgot I was drinking tea but otherwise it’s very very malty and a bit chocolatey and it tastes a bit fruity to me too, though I couldn’t tell you which fruit, other than not the more acidic citrus fruits. Very subtle to me though. The malt flavour comes through the most. I have another cup of this to go tonight and probably resteep the leaves tomorrow. I’ll add anything if something is different between now and then.

ETA: And apparently this is tasting note #400. Woo!

Also, I really like the word ‘wont’

Despite my education being MATH MATH MATH, I really like words. Especially unusual words.

grats on 400 tasting notes!! woot woot!

Starfevre

Haha, not even in the same universe as you, Sil, but I’m pretty happy about it since that’s only about a half a year of active drinking (and the other half not so much).

Sil

whatever! have to celebrate those goals when you hit them!
