kteaslogoBefore I begin my review, I must reveal that I'm not normally a black tea drinker. But put any tea in front of me that's organically grown, hand-harvested and grown high above sea level, and I'll quickly forget there's any type of tea I won't drink.  KTeas Bolivian Whole Leaf Black Tea fits all of the above criteria. Plus it's grown in the valleys of the Andes Mountains, a mountain range that I traveled through when in South America recently and which I am still in awe of.  And I am also in awe of the size of this tea's leaves! As exotic-looking as where they are grown, this is an extremely leafy tea. The dry leaves are quite long (although not necessarily leggy) and some are very thickly twisted. On the nose, I'm picking up the raisin and sweet potato notes as promised.  I brew the tea according to KTeas instructions, using 2 heaping teaspoons of leaves per 8 ounces of boiling water. Word of caution though, these leaves are so big it's hard to measure on a spoon!  After steeping for about three minutes, I discover a deep copper-color liquor in my cup. The taste is surprisingly smooth and without the bitterness I sometimes associate with black tea. And altough the taste is malty to me, the sweet raisin notes give it a nice well-rounded flavor. In fact, compared to some black teas, this one is so easy to drink I've finished my cup within minutes. Yet another sign this isn't your usual cup of black tea...
