Tea Review: Black Tippy 1 (Bitaco)

Black Tippy 1
Type: Black
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description: This distinctive tea has a golden tippy dry leaf. The brewed tea has the darkest liquor color of any of our teas — a clear, deep amber. You will find it fully but gently astringent, lightly fruity, with teasing flavor notes reminiscent of raisins, yet always keeping the notable sweetness of Bitaco® Teas. This is an ideal morning breakfast tea.

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

The dry leaf has mild notes of cocoa and fruit with a faint hint of wood.

The deep red infusion has a rich aroma of cocoa and fruit.  The taste is moderately astringent with woody notes and a long finish.

While enjoyable on its own, this would also make a very nice base for a breakfast tea blend.

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