I am gutted that this tea is not currently available from Butiki or any of the other folks who carried it. Most folks probably demoted it in their heads just by seeing the letters CTC in the description, but that was a mistake….a beeeeeeeeeeg mistake. If you are a black tea drinker, one who doesn’t shy away from a hearty mouthful of tea (with or without milk) in the morning, find someone with a stash of this tea that isn’t crazy about it and ask for it in a swap. There are chocolate bottom notes, gorgeous baked bread middle notes and a lovely fruity top note that is combined with very little astringency, to make a “just complex enough” breakfast cup that is smooth and more than satisfying. It will make you make the “mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…..” noise when you take a mouthful… and I live for that!!
OOh! Steep time is 2 minutes on this. Don’t oversteep. If you do, you’ll think I’m a liar with very bad tastebuds.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Tree Fruit
