So this is that morning when I’m having a hard time getting going (not to imply that most of my mornings are otherwise…). But anyway, I’m drinking this tea, and it’s just perfect. It’s strong and deep and malty and, surprisingly (since I used a lot of leaf and steeped for a long time and didn’t pay much attention to brewing parameters generally), quite smooth. There’s some astringency, but I actually like that in a tea. This may not be a refined masterwork of a blend, but it’s really hitting this particular (sleep deprived and morning hating) spot for me in a way that not too many teas can.

I love Butiki for that very reason: it lets you kind of abuse parameters a bit without losing the beauty of the tea. And I hear you re awful sleepy mornings.

Yeah, I drink most of my tea at work and am not able to measure or time anything precisely, so it’s something I really appreciate.
