1524 Tasting Notes
I haven’t been keeping track of all the teas I’ve had for a few weeks now. I felt like I needed to write about this since I finished it up today. I love the sweet, slighty fruity smell of this dry. I wish it would translate more in the steeped tea. Nonetheless, this is a good nonbitter black tea. I don’t think I would buy this in the future.
I’ve been afebrile all day! woo! Still having the wet cough and a new onset of runny nose, but I’m so happy there is no more fever. Having fevers stink! Anyway, I decided to drink this tea and write a review. My notes may be skewed considering my current situation.
This smells like Butiki Tea’s other Kenyan teas. Delicious, fruity, and sweet. In the cup, it is a honey brown color. On my tongue, it is light and airy. There is a touch of toast in there and warmth with a hint of fruits. It is fine on its own. There is a tiny, tiny hint of astringency. It is barely there. Delicious tea overall. Not one of my favs but it is still good.
I am way too sick to try any new teas, so I have been drinking this and my chai bora. :( This tisane is comforting… soothing.
