From Upton Tea Imports

This tea yields a smooth, well-balanced liquor with a dark amber hue and fruity nuances in the aroma. The wiry leaves have a moderate complement of golden tips. African teas of this style have been popular but elusive, as many estates in Africa have discontinued production of quality Orthodox teas.

A lovely medium-amber color with a malty/earthy/fruit flavor. I even picked up a couple floral notes and a bit that I want to say was . . . pumpkin? Yes, definitely pumpkin for a few sips there.

I oversteeped this yesterday and was interested to note that the flavor overlay was distinctly different from that of a Chinese black that has been oversteeped. Not quite bitter, more like, I suppose woody would be one way to describe it.

Still finishing this one from my sweetea package from Ellen. I have this in my station stash. I can not buy more tea until I diminish the stash according to my future bride. So this and a bunch of samples I have are at the radio station. Straight black tea. Has an amber liquor like a good Assam. It’s good malty maybe even a little grainy like a wheat taste to it.

Milima Estate is goooooood. I drank a lot of it once when I couldn’t get any Assam. It’s a bit cleaner than Assam, though. I like your description of it as “grainy.”

Some of the Kenya teas are truly beautiful. This is one of them.
