My first cup of this was so thick and reminiscent of molasses. It was too much so I had to dump it and steep it for 3 min. It was so much better!

It’s very strong, and malty, and slightly sweet and full of depth. I can’t wait to try the other samples.

How long did you steep the first cup? 5 mins?

JusTea

Glad you tried it again! Because of the freshness of the tea, it requires a shorter steep time than many other black teas! Hope you try the Chai and the Earl Grey soon!

I can’t wait to! I was so impressed by the Kenya Black!

A great combination of chai spices and malty black tea. Straight up, you taste the maltiness of the black tea, followed by the spices with a sweet aftertaste. Added milk and sweetener, the tea becomes more flavorful with the spices melding better with the black base.

I just got my tea from JusTea’s Indiegogo campaign.

It smells very malty and deep. The leaves are not huge, but most definitely not the standard African CTC type.

It’s very good. Very Assamy in a way. Malty with a little grassy flavor in the background maybe. Dry but not astringent or bitter. It does indeed taste and smell very fresh. I’d definitely try their Kenyan Earl Grey and I’d probably order from them again once I work through this initial 200 grams. (Assuming a reasonable shipping rate from Canada.) :)

Nice! Hoping to hear from them someday though apparently my messages are the ones that keep going poof lol. If not, I’ll steal some from you or cavocorax :)

Well, I’ve sure got enough to share. :)

Wow, you must have contributed a lot! I did the sampler and got 3×15g. They won’t last long, but I could save you a cup.

Thanks for being in touch, glad you received everything! Happy steeping!
