Kenya, a country in East Africa, is known worldwide for its wildlife reserves, its lofty mountain peaks, and the high quality offerings from the country's tea gardens and coffee plantations. Kenya tea is a main staple in Irish and English tea blends, and for years it was mostly produced for the tea bag trade. For the past 10 years or so, the Kenya tea producers have been focusing on more orthodox producing to create high quality large leaf style teas.
This tea is cultivated in the southern slopes of Mount Kenya, next to the Mount Kenya Forest. at altitudes ranging between 800m to 2400m. The plants used are of the Assamica variety.
These medium-large sized black leaves brew to a deep amber cup with an oaky, woodsy aroma. The well-rounded cup yields a medium bodied brew with an oaky, slightly malty taste and notes of orange. This vibrant cup is strong enough for your morning brew and makes an excellent pick me up in the afternoon.
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
A very vibrant tea
Yet another great black tea from S&V. The description is pretty spot on too! It's a little bit malty and is the most beautiful vivid orange color when steeped. This is going into my rotation of morning blends. It's not overly strong and the bright color is a great way to start the day!

Fabulous tea at a bargain price
Having tried a few African teas in the last weeks, this one stands out with its complexity. The description by Simpson & Vail is seems very accurate, behind all the other flavours is a note of fruit. At any rate, a very enjoyable afternoon tea at a very reasonable price. I look forward to drinking more of it!
