Description

Kenya orthodox tea: a rare TGFOP1 grade tea

This large leaf Kenya orthodox tea is a rare TGFOP1 grade with a lovely appley and caramel aroma. Bronze in the cup it is full bodied, rich and smooth with that distinct, sought-after Kenyan tang but without undue tannin. Great as a breakfast tea, it provides just the stimulus you need to start the day. Use one heaped teaspoon per cup plus one for the pot with freshly boiling water. Infuse for four minutes and drink with milk.

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

    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.

    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
