From Gong Fu Tea Shop

This black tea from Kenya is produced in the Cut-Tear-Curl fashion, yielding a small, broken leaf and a strong liquor. Unbeknownst to many of us in America, Kenya is the fourth largest tea-producing nation in the world. This Kenyan is full-bodied but smooth, and a good accompaniment to a hearty breakfast.

I love many different black teas, but this one is just superb. It is rich and robust, yet mellow; strong, yet wonderfully smooth. I absolutely adore it. However, I do wish it was certified organic!

This is my second cup of this tea. The sample I have comes from Charissa. Thank you.

I started work EARLY this morning. I work an office job, but when I have a lot of stuff to get done I am one of those weird folks who likes to get up at the crack of dawn, and when I say the crack of dawn I really mean before most normal human beings would even think about waking up. My boss jokes that he didn’t even know that hour existed. I work better int he morning. Always have. So here I sit, tea in hand. Enjoying the last few minutes of piece and quite before the crowds decide to come in for the day.

Over the past few months I have had a few blended or straight teas from Kenya. To be honest I haven’t given these teas a fair chance. This tea is making me rethink my perspective to Kanyan teas. This tea is offing a complexity I didn’t expect. This is a brisk yet smooth cup. There are subtle hints of cream/vanilla in this cup and it also offers some small undertones of fruit. I could easily continue to enjoy this tea as a morning cup. My favorite from Gong Fu Tea shop ran out this weekend so it looks like the next time I am in Des Moines when the store is open or they offer free shipping I will be stocking up again. This may just make it into my cart.


I’m currently embroiled in CTCs….just about to review another one from Kenya. They can be wonderful!
