From Butiki Teas

Our Royal Highland Kenyan Green originates from the southern slopes of Mount Kenya between the Rundu and Mukengeria rivers and is pesticide-free. This juicy green tea has grassy, white corn, kale, creamed spinach, and macadamia notes. Sweet undertones and a buttery quality are present in this delicious tea. While Royal Highland Kenyan Green has a thick mouth feel, it is also quite refreshing. Be cautious not to over steep this tea because it could become bitter. More extensive information on our Kenyan teas can be found HERE.

I had some last week and more today and it’s a goody as long as you don’t over steep – which Stacy DID mention this in the description. Thanks Stacy! It can get bitter – you’ve been warned LOL

But seriously – this is a decent Kenyan Green. It’s thick, a bit grassy, a little like spinach, with a hint of sweet.

I do think this is a nice offering and think the more who try it will tinker with it and find they appreciate it! It’s dandy!

This free sample came from Butiki – thank you so much Stacy!

This is really good, it reminds me of a few Indian greens I have tried. The tea is robust with strong vegetal notes, I’m definitely getting the kale and spinach type of flavor. There’s some palette cleansing astringency present, I might have oversteeped this a tad because I wasn’t really watching what I was doing. I wouldn’t say it became bitter although it is slightly sour in flavor but the nuttiness also gives it somewhat of a rich and brothy character.

Anyway I like it! It’s super flavorful and lively. If you’re into more robust Chinese greens like chun mee or you might want to give this one a whirl. I was kind of asleep before I drank this and now I feel pretty zippy… on the shopping list it goes!

ps – I also got a nice 2nd steep out of it

This green is more sweet the vegetal, but different than other “sweet” greens that I’ve had. I can’t quite explain the difference though. I steeped it according to directions with 160F water for 3 min. There’s a very tiny hint of bitterness, but not bad.

It’s an OK green tea, but I prefer a serious vegetal soup most of the time. I have room for some exceptions for sake of variety, but this one doesn’t quite make the cut.

My first African tea. Tastes rich, vegetal, and maybe a little floral as well perhaps. I’ve been drinking a lot of Japanese green teas lately, so this is a nice change to something a little different. At about 165F for just over two minutes I didn’t find it bitter at all.
