6 Tasting Notes View all

From The Tea Emporium

One of the few tea estates remaining in Kenya that produce an orthodox tea leaf. A rich full-bodied tea with floral-like flavour notes. The cup has thickness with a malty but lively character. A perfect all day tea.

This. is. home.
I’ve been sampling so many new teas lately that I was forgetting my tea roots! so I decided to take a jaunt down memory lane and look what I found :)
Oh man does this ever hit home for me. I was worried that it might be too old, as I believe it’s been in my cupboard forgotten for almost a year now… but it’s as good as ever! Thank goodness!
Malty and a bit floral this time, with just the right amount of boldness and astringency.
Funny, even with the super tasty teas I’ve had, none of them gave me tea chi. With this one, well let’s just say I am in a very happy place. I really needed my chi today!!
Now off to study…

Niiiiice! Thanks to Indigobloom for sending me a sample of this! I’ve been looking for a kenyan tea to add to my repertoire and this one looks like it will fit the bill very nicely.

This is rich with some beautiful floral notes but without the astringency or the tannins of a darjeeling. I’m getting a nice bit of malt here in my cup as well. I did decide to drink this with soymilk and it’s quite a swell morning cuppa! It’s a bit fruity too.

Wow a tea from Kenya! I would have never imagined… thanks Indigobloom! Recently with all my exploits with darjeeling teas I think I have understood this word acronym game. GFBOP stands for Golden Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe. So this is neither a first flush, or a tippy grade tea. Doing some research online, I found out that this tea comes from a high altitude plantation of above 1800m.

Colour is a deep golden brown, very similiar to some darjeelings again. There is no astringency at all with this tea, the malt does come through, but stops short of being caramel. Overall, it is very sweet and very easy to drink. The floral tones only came through from the dry leaves and not so much after the brew. What comes out to the end is that it really lacks the character of darjeelings but as it is grown at similar altitudes, it does taste relatively similar. Though it is not at all a bad tea, there’s not too much that stands out beside coming from Kenya, it would make a fine breakfast tea.

I felt the same about this one at first, but it’s odd… one of the few black teas I actually crave every now and again.

i should send you some straight black teas next time :)

I’ve been on the hunt to find a main black tea that I love… but so far haven’t found one I can get a regular supply of to use at home. They’re all missing something. Oh well, gotta have some goals! :)
—I wish this postal strike would end!!! there are one or two I think you would find interesting.

I wanted this for a morning tea, which I like to drink with milk, but didn’t find it strong enough. Still, nice enough.
