drank Imara Organic Black Tea by MAJANI
2201 tasting notes

Sipdown, 243. This is another sample from Majani that I have thanks to Kasumi no Chajin!

After my experience with the Thabiti black (it was a bit too robust for my tastes), I steeped this one cooler and shorter. Still, the steeped tea smells strong and full-bodied. Woof, this is strong! Too strong and bitter for me. This needs milk and sugar (and many Kenyan teas are basically designed to be taken with milk and sugar), but I unfortunately have none. This type of tea is really not my type, although it is likely a good example of it’s type. Glad to try it out, though.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
