Tea Review: Black Leafy 2 (Bitaco)

Black Leafy 2
Bitaco
Type: Black
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description: Larger twisted leaves that are a touch ragged. The liquor color is slightly darker than Leafy 1 and yields a sweet mellow cup like that of Leafy 1.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a mildly floral aroma with notes of aged wood and oats.

The bright orange-red infusion has a heady aroma of baked fruit with a taste that is lightly astringent and rich with notes of baked fruit, molasses, and brown bread.  

This is a very approachable black tea with the best flavor in the first two infusions.
