My stash of Kenyan Black Tea is running quite low, so I decided to grab some from my local tea cafe/shop and was very excited to find this one as an option!

There is a strong resemblance to Assam in appearance, with a good portion of golden tips. However, I find its flavor slightly reminiscent of a good quality Darjeeling.

This tea has plenty of complexity with its creamy, spicy and malty notes. The liquid is very smooth and savory with very little bitterness.

From what I see so far, this tea will work out very nicely chilled, sweetened slightly and served over ice.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a southern boy that relocated to the Mid-West that has an intense love for high quality loose leaf tea! This is no doubt, a passion I intend to enjoy and pursue for the rest of my life! I love the art of tea, and the expression of it’s culture in each cup.

Typically, I’m a straight tea and loose-leaf type of drinker. Black teas (especially Taiwanese blacks), Greener Oolong and Sheng Pu-erhs are top on my list!

Don’t get me wrong though, I do like me some darker, roasted oolongs, shu puerhs, greens and whites are a must as well!

I guess the only way to get the bigger picture is to start with that I love tea. Almost all traditional teas are welcomed, and I have been know to try a few flavored or blended teas.
