Another backlog. I had a really intense on site interview the other day that I had to get up earlier than usual for. Basically, I met ten people in the span of 5-6 hours, one at a time. Yikes. Anyway, I woke up that morning really feeling like I needed a solid black tea to drink. I probably should have reached for one that I had tasted before, but I decided to take a risk and steep this one. I’m actually so glad that I did, though, because this tea was delicious.
Most of my favorite black teas are actually Verdant’s straight blacks, but this one is definitely a contender for a top spot. It was nice and malty, perfect for mornings. Yet it was also sweet and potato-y. Overall, a pretty complex variety of flavors all deliciously blending together into this one cup of amazing tea. I’m definitely glad that I made that second Butiki order or else I would have missed out on this!
