Continuing with the tribute to Mr. Harney (a great idea from mj1851!) I decided this would be perfect with my late lunch. I made a Kenyan dish called Sukuma Wiki (braised collard greens and ground beef). I’m not sure the flavors in the food and the tea pair perfectly, but I like that they’re both from Kenya. :)
The tea is fruity with a tobacco flavor at the finish. As the tea cools there is a bit of a woody flavor – maybe some leather – and a bit of astringency. I like this one a lot. I can see the comparison to Assams, but this is unique enough that I can see myself buying a tin of it and enjoying it as an afternoon tea.
