This second flush golden flowery orange pekoe grade leaf is a rare African orthodox variety. Most African teas are CTC (cut tear crush) processed. The tea photo shows the dark black leaves with some golden-brown tips. This tea steeps a bright orange color. It is strong with hints of flowers. This tea is often mistaken for being a Chinese Yunnan.

I need to fix this tea entry when I get back to having a real computer.

This is a really deep intense rich black tea out of Kenya. Apparently a Chinese hybrid varietal. Very interesting. I gentled it down a bit with milk and sugar and it is really quite pleasant. I’ll start heating water up for the second steep in a minute but the first was very very nice. Ever since I discovered Justea, I have found a fondness for nice Kenyan teas. Also any of my friends living in Vancouver BC should PM me, speaking of Justea.

ETA: 2nd steep was good but the 3rd was really weak. A two steep tea for me.

Seriously, it’s about a free thing.

Sil

lol if i lived in vancouver i’d bug you. I’m really like justea’s kenyan black. it’s on the reorder list at some point :)

Starfevre

It’s a thing actually. A tea cupping class I got from supporting their most recent campaign that I can’t get to so I thought I’d offer it to the people on here. If it weren’t a week long in the evenings I’d drive up myself.

Sil

oh that’s awesome!

MissB

Oh? I’m in Vancouver. Do you need me to get it to you somehow?

Starfevre

It is a class to attend by the Justea guys.

Sil

missB..she’s offering to let YOU go silly goose… (well someone in vancouver)

Cavocorax

Sil – I… bought the 3 pack so I can share some Justea with you, or slip some into a little envelope once it shows up here.

Starfevre – that’s too bad about missing the cupping class! That sounds like it’d be quite the experience.

Sil

hahahahahaha of course you did

Starfevre

In theory I could attend but I am just not up for that much driving anytime soon.
