Tea Review: Black Tippy 2 (Bitaco)

Black Tippy 2
Type: Black
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description: This tea has fewer tips than Tippy 1 but is really quite attractive visually. It has a lighter color than Tippy 1, an appealing clear, amber color. The brewed tea liquor delivers the subtle sweetness characteristic of Tippy 1 but with less overall astringency.

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

The dry leaves have a sweet aroma of plums and seasoned wood.

The dark red infusion has an aroma of baked fruit and brown sugar while the taste is moderately astringent and sweet with notes of baked brown bread.

The first and second infusions were similarly full-flavored.  While the third infusion was mellower, I found it to be rather nice on its own merits.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
