Steepster, you are killing me this afternoon! You only load like every other page.

Anyway, sipdown, 261. This is a sample thanks to Kasumi no Chajin!

I continue to be enthralled by these Kenyan teas. A Kenyan green is particularly interesting because almost all the tea you see coming out of there is black. Steeped up, this tea definitely smelled buttery and nutty, with a bit of grassiness to it as well (but not too much). The flavor was initially lackluster but it built on my palate as I drank it and is now pretty delicious. I particularly like the aftertaste of lilacs… the tea itself is not floral at all, but then a few moments after swallowing the sensation of lilacs fills my mouth and nose. Delightful. Not sure that I would rebuy this one based soley on this tasting, but it is very pleasant and a lovely tea to drink.

Profile

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
