Loose Kenyan Tea

Loose Kenyan Tea: noted for its robust character and tanginess.

Black Kenyan tea is full-bodied with a noticeably tangy character. Orthodox teas are not commonly produced in Kenya and here we have two examples of loose Kenyan tea. They have beautifully black leaves, a robust aroma and well-rounded flavour. Most teas are produced for mass market blends yet here we have teas which offer all-round balanced flavours whilst retaining the tangy character for which these teas are much admired. In Kenya tea is grown on both sides of the Rift Valley in the highlands east of Lake Victoria. First planted in 1903 with seed from Assam, these days much is produced in smallholdings rather than the huge tea estates of fifty years ago. Teas are generally grown at altitudes of 5,000 to 8,000 feet on rich volcanic soils with much rainfall. The best teas are picked in January-February and June-July.

Kenya orthodox tea TGFOP1

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

Service rating : Good quick service, but teas are of very poor quality compared with one bought previously from this company.
Product : Produced an extremely cloudy infusion and a dreadful taste.


On 25-Mar-2015 the supplier responded:
I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with this tea. We stock it because of its quality and I have recently tasted this tea and decided to add it to our catalogue. I am concerned as to how the tea was prepared. It needs infusing for no more than three minutes with fresh, boiled water that has cooled for a couple of minutes.
