    Product: A beautiful tea indeed.
    Service: I love that this company is just so passionate about tea. The Kenyan Orthodox is my favourite cuppa.

  12. cjh (verified owner)

    My tea of default. A rich, complex flavour – can be enjoyed at anytime

  13. Iris Assing (verified owner)

    Product: A bit weeker than we assumed it would be, so we need a lot of tea which makes it rather expensive.
    Service: Brilliant teas and excellent choices for every taste

  14. Stuart (verified owner)

    My new fave. A fantastic, and better, replacement for my usual Kenyan. This a tea I’ll endeavour never to run out of.

  15. CHRIS HOLLICK (verified owner)

    Always satisfying. A tea that comes at the top of the order list.

  16. Chris (verified owner)

    A great discovery. Consistently flavoursome with robust body.

  17. Barry Candeland (verified owner)

    Product: All teas i have tried from this site have been of good quality, in fact the choice is somewhat overwhelming. However Kenya orthodox tea TGFOP1is my tea of choice.
    I’m no expert but it seems to me this tea is what I regard as a traditional tasting tea similar to tea that I enjoyed over 50 years ago (but better). The reason I like it is it has a good strength and body but also with a certain delicacy and nice clean taste. A thoroughly enjoyable compromise.
    Service: good choice and efficiently dispatched once ordered.

  18. Chris (verified owner)

    Currently my first pick. Full flavoured and entirely satisfying.

  19. CHRIS (verified owner)

    First tasting of this tea – and a great delight. A rich aroma and soft cocoa on the palate. Could be enjoyed at anytime, day or night. Will be a regular addition to the order.

  20. CHRIS HOLLICK (verified owner)

    A tea that is consistently of high quality. Lots of body. Suitable for any time of day.

    Always the first on the order list. An exemplar of a full bodied and consistently flavoursome Kenyan tea.

  24. Chris (verified owner)

    A top quality tea at a reasonable price. Can be enjoyed any time.

  25. ruthfrankiefrancis (verified owner)

    Good and strong this one. Takes milk well and gives a lovely morning kick at breakfast time! Love it.

  26. Philip (verified owner)

    Great flavour and quite brisk to the taste.

  27. Colin (verified owner)

    Kenya varietal tea – a first for me.
    The falvour is overwhelmingly that of baked, slightly caramelised apple, or pasteurised/UHT sweet apple juice.
    For me, it makes a nice breakfast tea – it seems to fit well with cereal and milk.

  28. Chris (verified owner)

    This excellent tea is bound to become a regular standard. A top quality Kenyan.
