Bentley’s is a sub-brand of Boston Tea Company, if you were curious.

This one was a freebie available at my office, enjoyed at the end of a long week.

Steeped for 4-5min and brewed in an enamel mug.

The first note that comes strongly through is wood, a less-discerning drinker might consider this more cardboard than wood. I pick up bamboo or sweet balsa wood more than straight cardboard, as if you were chewing on a bamboo skewer or toothpick for too long. It’s really not a bad thing.
Just think about eating one of those little balsa wood glider planes from when you were a kid. Maybe you did want to eat them, after all.

It’s just one-dimensional, probably partially a result of being decaffeinated. If you like drinking hot bamboo skewers with no caffeine pick me up, this is the right blend for you.

Flavors: Bamboo, Cardboard, Wood

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 0 sec 2 g 10 OZ / 295 ML

I enjoy many tasty things in life. Getting back into tea as I am trying to wean off of coffee for regular consumption and maintain a more healthy lifestyle.

Also enjoyed are all of the historical implications of tea culture, and teas of the world.
Take a moment to meditate with a cup in hand, and our world will seem clearer when the last sip leaves your cup!

My rating system is in honor of K.S.

90-100 Stellar, to be displayed proudly if shared with guests. Or just a tea that hits its mark well.
80-90 I enjoy this tea a lot, would purchase and drink it. Fine if it lives in the pantry
70-80 Above Average, would drink it and probably still buy if the mood struck me.
50-70 Average, I would still drink it when available.
0-50 I don’t care for this tea, and have no desire to care for it.
