Another tea from the ADV.01 class. This one is simply titled Kenya Lelsa Estate Black tea but judging from the appearance of the loose leaf and the flavor profile. It matches up with this one. The loose leaf is very rugged. A mix of leaves and stems and CTC in every which way. Dak brown leaves with light brown stems. The aroma is slightly sweet. Somewhat attributed to the packaging but also slightly woody. The infused leaf adds a nutty aroma with a hint of veggie spaghetti sauce. While the liquor aroma is reminiscent of wheat bread and spaghetti squash. Professional infusing reveals quite the astringency with a puckering like one would get from eating an orange rind. The flavor is bitter but also reminds me of burnt marshmallows. Mainly just the burnt part. There is a hint of fresh bread from the oven as well as an amalgamation of woody notes. It leaves the palate feeling a bit leathery and dry. When I infuse this differently I will come back with an update.
