Butiki Educational Box #2

I decided to try this one after sniffing all four of the Kenya Orthodox blacks. It was between this one and #1 and this one had more left, so I figured I’d leave the other for someone else….unless I really like this one, and then I’ll go ahead and try all four. Crazier things have happened.

Well, I don’t think I’ll be trying all four.

My teeth are starting to feel funny. I only get this after drinking black teas. What is that?

It’s okay. I feel like there’s a depth this tea is missing, though. I don’t know. It’s got a nice aroma, and as it cools it’s starting to taste better to be, but still like it’s missing something. An oomph that just isn’t there.

It’s funny, though, because this is reminding me of a nice Scotch in a strange sort of way. I like the single malts that are peaty and malty and smoky. This isn’t smoky, and it’s malty but not too much so, but it is making me think scotch.

But the more it cools and the more I drink this, the more I like it. I still am not overwhelmed enough to want to try the others. Ah well.


IMO Orthodox Black 3 is the best one of the lot.


Maybe I’ll go back and try that, then.

Soft aroma has malt and a hint of fruit. The taste is rich with only a bit of tannin. Not terribly complex, but really good.
Thanks to *Stacy at Butiki Tea* for putting this box together

From the Butiki TTB2.

Much better quality. Definitely doesn’t need milk and/or sugar. Golden liquor. Full-bodied, bold, a little malty, astringent.
