From Gather!

Royal Kenyan Teas are unblended and pesticide free. These teas are owned and harvested by Kenyan farmers throughout the country. We import teas directly from the Kenyan small scale farmers to bring you the very best Kenya has to offer. These Kenyan Teas are also exported to royal families in Europe, luxury hotel chains all over the world and used to blend and flavor most of America’s ready to drink products. These rare teas are processed at farmer owned factories from all over the country paying special attention in importing teas from Rainforest Alliance Certified factories. All Royal Kenyan teas are unparalleled in flavor, color and quality. Our lines of black and green teas are simply superior and very high in antioxidants. This tea is named after Arthur Njuguna Komo, the oldest tea farmer in the world, who turns 113 this year. Grandpa’s Anytime Tea is a mellow and light tea. The aroma of the dry leaf is sweet, and slightly tangy, and it brews into a rich, red liquor. This tea produces a satisfying brew which tastes good by itself or with milk and sweetener.

I am gutted that this tea is not currently available from Butiki or any of the other folks who carried it. Most folks probably demoted it in their heads just by seeing the letters CTC in the description, but that was a mistake….a beeeeeeeeeeg mistake. If you are a black tea drinker, one who doesn’t shy away from a hearty mouthful of tea (with or without milk) in the morning, find someone with a stash of this tea that isn’t crazy about it and ask for it in a swap. There are chocolate bottom notes, gorgeous baked bread middle notes and a lovely fruity top note that is combined with very little astringency, to make a “just complex enough” breakfast cup that is smooth and more than satisfying. It will make you make the “mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…..” noise when you take a mouthful… and I live for that!!

OOh! Steep time is 2 minutes on this. Don’t oversteep. If you do, you’ll think I’m a liar with very bad tastebuds.

I don’t undervalue a well made CTC Assam as well. I get one from to e to time at a local Indian grocery store and when fresh its delicious.

I know this is an African tea, I’ve been tempted to try the Kenyan one they have as well but they only sell it by the kilo!

yyz, which one is that? I have a bit left in a sample of the Tajiri….

This is not going to be very helpful as one of my local Indian Grocery Stores sells it in private label bulk packaging. The Assam CTC the sell is excellent, but they rarely have the Kenyan one in less than a kilo packets.

Just found it at Stylin’ Tea Blends! woot woot!! I just ordered 9 oz of this stuff! I’m set for winter (all 2 months of it out here in southern California!)
