I had to try this one because it isn’t even in the system yet! Thanks again for the samples! I just know I’d love every tea on the site… which I didn’t even know existed until I saw the sample offer! Three minutes steeping a teaspoon and a half after waiting a few minutes after boiling, this one is so good. The quality of Kenyan teas is NOT why most Kenyan teas go through the crush-tear-curl process. I rarely see a Kenyan tea that isn’t CTC. But Kenyan teas have a flavor profile all their own that I just love… it just sometimes doesn’t need the astringency of a CTC. I had a non-CTC Kenyan tea the other day that had more malty dark chocolate notes. This one has less of that, but it is so complex! This is a medium bodied tea. Notes of plum and hay. The aftertaste is dark chocolate, more than the actual sip. One sip was even spicy! Different from the Kenyan tea I had recently, but DELICIOUS in its own way. I definitely need to have a Kenyan tea stocked in my collection at all times (and NOT a CTC)!
