Tea Review: Black Wiry 2 (Bitaco)

Black Wiry 2
Type: Black
Origin: Colombia, La Cumbre
Product Description:
Larger, longer leaves, well sorted long, wiry leaves. Its liquor displays an amber color that is similar but paler than Leafy 1. It offers you a nice mellow-sweet cup, delightful in the afternoon or anytime.
Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of wood, stone fruit, oats, and honey. 

The copper red infusion has a sweet aroma of baked stone fruit and honey with a dark rich taste of dates and light malt with mild astringency and a long finish.

While the best results are in the first infusion, the mellower second infusion is also pleasant.  Steeping for 3 minutes provided the best results for my preference and for those that prefer something a little bolder with more astringency,  results are good with a slightly longer steeping time.
