I had this at work a couple of days ago, so the memory is a bit vague. Chikondi means love in Chichewa – a Bantu language spoken in Malawi. These beads hold their shape quite well. They hadn’t unfurled fully by the time I was done with them, which probably means they still had some juice left in them. Using a 350ml mug has the downside of getting to enjoy fewer steeps.
This tea produces a light brass colored liquor with a distinctive biscuity flavor. Freshly baked langues de chat, a hint of burnt sugar and roasted squash. An interesting white tea for both looks and taste.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Butternut Squash, Cookie
