Listed on Grey’s Teas as: Kenya Rift Valley Green Tea
A rare and wonderful orthodox green tea from Kenya… Now aged 111 Arthur Njuguna Komo planted his tea estate over fifty years ago on naturally fertile soils at an altitude of 6700 ft in Gatundu District, amongst the foothills of Mount Kenya, alongside the Rundu and Mukengeria rivers. Whilst continuing to play an active role in ensuring the quality of his tea and furthering the enlightened approach to employment which he pioneered, it is now run by his grandaughter, Joy. This orthodox, large leaf green tea is loosely rolled and has a sweet and fruity aroma of peaches, nectarines and mangos. In the cup the greeny gold infusion is mellow, complex and full flavoured. Brew for thirty seconds with freshly boiled water that is a minute off the boil. Up to five infusions can be made with the leaf. Truly delicious.

Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea!
This is really lovely! Sweet with lovely fruit notes. I love it when I come across a pure green like this that is stronger on its fruit notes than its vegetal notes! This has more of a fruity taste than one of grass or spinach or beans or peas. I taste notes of sweet nectarine! Hints of mango. This is deliciously juicy and sweet!
The tea is fresh and sweet and it has a brothy sort of texture, but not a strong brothy taste (that is to say it doesn’t taste like veggie broth! It tastes like a broth made of fruit!)
This is really good.
