Additional Information

  • Description
    It took some searching, but this sublime example of a fine single estate Kenyan tea is the very best of its kind. Produced by the Kaimosi Estate in the North Nandi district of Kenya, the tea’s uniquely delicate, spidery leaves produce a rich, russet brew full of ripe autumnal flavours. There's a layered complexity to the cup, yielding a plummy sweetness and a slight hint of cinnamon spice – full-bodied and flavoursome, it's excellent for breakfast with a buttery croissant.

Origin: Kenya

Since tea was first introduced to the country in 1903, Kenya has grown in production to become the third largest tea grower in the world, thanks to a tropical climate, red volcanic soil and well-distributed rainfall. The most exceptional single-origin varieties are well worth seeking out, with a ripe, autumnal flavour and a sweet hint of spice…

Bless the Rains Down in Africa

Kenya produces roughly 350,000 tonnes of tea for export annually, often used in blends to give colour and richness to the cup. However, a truly excellent Kenyan tea can sometimes be tricky to find – the secret to this brew's extraordinary flavour is the estate's heady altitudes of 6,000ft and strong tradition of tea cultivation.

Black Tea

Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
