Thanks to Nicole for sending a sample of this my way.

My experience with Kenyan teas generally is they can be kind of astringent and brisk, but this really surprised me. It’s fairly mellow and has a nice maltiness with some brown sugar notes. Very fragrant in the cup as well. I managed to sip on it plain a bit but it was also heavenly with bit of soymilk and coconut sugar. I sense an underlying orange note in the finish. Definitely will consider picking this up for the permanent collection as I’ve been looking for a good tea from Africa and this is the best I’ve found yet, at least to my taste. thanks Nicole!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
