From Wanja Tea of Kenya

Mwanga is the Swahili word for light. An exquisite, high quality whole leaf black tea with a lot of tip that is grown in the high altitude region of Mount Kenya. F.O.P means Flowery Orange Pekoe and it refers to the size of the leaf and not the taste.

The tea is harvested by hand in small-scale family owned farms that utilize sustainable and eco-friendly farming methods.It has rich, subtle and citrus notes with no astringency. It makes for an excellent morning tea due to it caffeine content.
One dollar of each ounce sold will go towards helping Kopernik equip young girls in the urban slums of Nairobi, Kenya with small business kits to sell portable solar lights to their communities.
Brewing Instructions:
Brew approximately one teaspoon in 8 ounces of water between 200-212 degrees F for a period of 4-5 minutes.

One ounce makes approximately 15 servings.

It only took a month, but my Wanja order is finally here! Yay for delayed tea!

Something in the dry leaf and liquor aroma makes me want to roll around like a cat on catnip.. except I’m not a cat so I did a lot of hopping and skipping around instead. After taking a sip, I did even more of that. Being caffeine sensitive is usually good for the spirit but bad for gaining a respectable public image.

This bright, vivid orange-brown cup is like floral silk and citrus rind. The finish is brisk but not drying. Second steep is even more floral silk, almost thick enough to be a thin cream.

I’m not sure I’d pick this over my favourite mouth shredder, the Wanja OP, but I’ve an ounce-length span to make that decision if I need to.

Flavors: Flowers, Orange Zest

This one came from CrowKettle.

Sadly the tea is really flat. There’s no life to it. I added milk and sugar to see if it would perk up at all, but it didn’t. I didn’t quite finish the cup (I was in an all day training session, and the smell of coffee was just… I gave in and had half a cup), and that is sad.

This really isn’t a tea for me, although I really liked the last Wanja tea CrowKettle shared with me.

YMMV. :/

Oh. It’s a high altitude tea. Maybe that has something to do with it.
