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
