drank Ntingwe Kwazulu by Taylors of Harrogate
1719 tasting notes

This tea is from an estate in South Africa. It gives a whole new meaning to the term tea dust. How do they pack so much flavor in such tiny leaf. Taylors of Harrogate state this should be infused for 4-5 minutes. I remember only going two last time and thinking that was plenty. This morning I was too asleep to remove the Finum basket for several undetermined minutes. I was expecting a bitter nasty cup. Instead it is very good. Sort of Assam like but with a fruity quality. I still catch hints of clove and cinnamon way in the background that no one else is mentioning. A solid morning cup.

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
