Just got back from a camping trip with my sweetie and a bunch of his friends. We were up kind of late and I wanted a cup of tea when I got home, just to revive myself. This is one of 3 teas I got recently at David’s, but I only got 1 oz. of each since I’d never had them before.
My track record with Kenyan teas is not great and this is a CTC tea. Regardless I really wanted to try it in the hopes that I would like it.
Gah! This is very strong. The brew is pretty tannic and bitter, it was really undrinkable for me before I added sugar. After adding sugar, I am getting some malt notes as well as apple notes which are kinda tasty. I steeped this for 5 minutes but next time I will go for 4, or maybe even 3. It really packs a punch! Hopefully I can find a way to enjoy the 1 oz. I have.
Not recommended unless you’re a fan of strong tannic tea…
