From Stylin' Tea

We were very excited at Stylin’ Tea Blends to meet Joy from Royal Tea of Kenya and hear some wonderful stories about her grandfather. Grandpa Arthur Nijuguna Komo was born in 1901 and is the oldest living tea farmer in the world. He started tea farming in 1959 and since then has not only developed high quality tea on his own estates, but has mentored and assisted many other tea farmers in the area over the years. This tea is a very hearty and organic black tea from Kamunyaka settlement in Thika District next to the Kieni Forest. It is also herbicide and pesticide free since Grandpa wouldn’t have it any other way!

This tea was featured by Tea Sparrow, a monthly tea subscription service. Michael, the owner of Tea Sparrow, reviewed this tea in April 2013. He wrote, “This reminds me of the tea I grew up drinking. Granular, strong and flavourful. Awesome with honey and milk.”

4 oz Loose Leaf packaged in a rice paper resealable pouch

I now officially have reviews of this tea from Royal Teas of Kenya under 3 different companies’ names…. as it is no longer available from the last 2 companies that I purchased it from, I was relieved to find it available from Stylin’ Teas. I adore this CTC. It is bready, malty wonderfulness with very little astringency, which as I’m finding, is not common for Kenyan teas. If you’ve written Kenya teas off because of their astringency, try this tea. This, to me, is the perfect smooth cup of breakfast tea to go with just about anything. WARNING: Only steep this for 1 1/2 minutes or you’ll end up with hair on your chest. Seriously, you might have to buy a No-No.
