From MAJANI

Black Kenyan teas are infused with a beautiful deep reddish color. Kenya is one of the leading producers of black teas. The profile of a black tea including its infusion color, body, strength, aroma and flavor depend on the tea bush varietal, the season of harvest, the elevation of the tea garden and the degree of tea leaf oxidation. Majani offers Orthodox black teas that are organic and fair trade. Kenya has started producing orthodox black teas that are can be enjoyed by themselves or infused with fruit. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.

Imara Organic Black Tea has balanced briskness, moderate body and toasty notes. Hints of caramel on the nose. Sweet finish with a touch of spice.

Sipdown, 243. This is another sample from Majani that I have thanks to Kasumi no Chajin!

After my experience with the Thabiti black (it was a bit too robust for my tastes), I steeped this one cooler and shorter. Still, the steeped tea smells strong and full-bodied. Woof, this is strong! Too strong and bitter for me. This needs milk and sugar (and many Kenyan teas are basically designed to be taken with milk and sugar), but I unfortunately have none. This type of tea is really not my type, although it is likely a good example of it’s type. Glad to try it out, though.

Trying to get the hang of my gaiwan. After my first experience (that I’ll blog about later) my gaiwan skillz got better. Today I’m just accident prone. I knocked over my cookie batter bowl, then the electric hand mixer. I missed chucking my tea leaves into my compost pail, so there’s red hibiscus tea splotches on my tile. Probably not a day to gaiwan, but I’m stubborn.

I got 3 runs so far, twice burning my fingers and one spilling accident. Of course, I just cleaned the kitchen this morning, but now its got cookie dough and tea all over the floor and counter!

First two quick steepings of this black was pretty good – rich, bold and a little caramel like. 3rd round my cup is now astringent, but still good.

Though, this tea goes well with my cookies!

I wish my cookies were pretty, I just sliced them. Knowing my luck today, I would of cut myself with the cookie cutter.

TY Kasumi no Chagin for the sample!

I always seem to burn myself baking. Your description of this day is going to make me nervous about prepping tea now!

Thanks, Kasumi no Chagin for sending this – trying a new tea that I enjoy is like a friend showing up in a convertible in early spring and shouting “let’s go!” and you just drive anywhere for the experience, fun. That’s what comes to mind as I sit back with my 2nd cup :)

Gentle boldness. Caramelized tobacco. Smooth. Astringency on the finish but here the astringency was part of the enjoyment, tempered by the long finish of the flavor profile, so was an integrated part of the tea’s character.

On edit, the astringency outlasted the flavor finish … a few long red lights on the way home from the joyride.

It is surprisingly good! Very bold and aromatic. While it is bold, it has sweet aroma. I like taking it without milk or sugar. Love it with ice, too. Also, it is unbelievably good deal$ compared to other quality Kenyan teas on market. Highly recommended.
