drank Virunga Sunrise by Nous Tea
1545 tasting notes

A sipdown! (M: 2, Y:2)
A sipdown prompt! A malty tea.

I had only two sachets, but sipdown is sipdown!
For first time I had it during my IATA DGR training and I little regretted that I had my travel mug only (with plastic inside) and that one is not a great vessel for all the nuances of tea.

But today I prepared it at home with my standard teaware and yes, it is huge difference. The tea is mostly citrusy actually. Quite strong and robust, with hints of stonefruits. And because I chose it as malty tea sipdown prompt, it is malty as well. However not so pleasant maltiness here, actually rather a bit on the bitter and metallic notes. A shame…

However tea from Rwanda… I am looking to try more from this region!

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
