I was lucky enough to visit their booth during the Coffee & Tea Festival in Philadelphia! I sampled their ginger variation of the black tea, but decided that I wanted to acquire a box of their plain offering.

It is a CTC black tea and comes in standard bag form. You must be careful not to oversteep.

I found it to be very astringent and strong. I forced myself to drink it plain to get to know it, as I’ve not really had Kenyan black tea before. I then had some cut with cream and a smidge of honey. It was much more enjoyable that way. It is a very malty and robust tea, and for the weak of heart (I admit, I was a little weak that day) it is a force to be reckoned with without something cut in to make it gentler.
