1599 Tasting Notes
This tea is bitter today. I can’t wait til I’m done with this tea. Blah…
Today was my last day of ICU. I’m a little sad about it because I enjoyed it. The nurses and attendings are all so awesome. My fellow resident and I went out to eat then she drove me home. I came home craving some tea and settled for this. Bad decision. I will make a different tea later. blah!
I’m just glad I only have enough left for one tea.
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.
