From Simpson & Vail

From the mountainous region of Colombia, in an area steeped in biodiversity, along the western slope of the Andes, is the Bitaco tea estate. The gentle mist from the mountains, rich soil, and ample rainfall all stimulate the growth of the tea bushes, producing a tea with unique characteristics. The large, black wiry, slightly tippy leaves have a light malty aroma and brew to an amber cup with a smooth taste and delicate fruity notes.

This was a pleasantly smooth black tea with a light, malty flavor. Nothing super memorable, but a nice cup of tea!

This is a fairly nice black tea. It is a bit malty and a bit sweet. It is strong enough that someone who likes to add milk to their tea probably could add it and still taste the tea. It is interesting to taste tea from someplace like Columbia. It does not seem to have the depth and character of a Chinese black but I do like it. I may try cold brewing it and see how it does as an iced tea. Overall this is a good tea.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 3 minutes.
