Kenyan Breakfast Tea
Start your day with this very pleasant breakfast tea to match any of your morning meals.
The brewed tea has an intensely bright rich red/amber colour and gives a full flavoured, yet a refreshingly light finish with good strength. The brew results in a pleasant aroma of dark dried plums with slight notes of malt and honey. This mellow malty taste has a full mouthfeel and surprisingly sweet finish without the strong tannins. To get the full flavour profile of this tea, try it without milk.
Sourcing and blending this tea from multiple mountainous plantations in Kisii County (sitting at an average of 1,900m (6233 ft) above sea level in the south of Kenya) This region is renowned for producing some of the finest tea due to the lush excellent conditions for the tea bushes to they thrive all year round, thanks to the tropical climate tempered with cooling breezes and plentiful rainfall from clouds.
