Description: The leaf style of this tea has a slightly chunkier aspect than many broken-leaf African teas. The cup is notable for its crisp character and pleasing pungency, which can accommodate a bit of milk if desired. The tea is smooth, and finishes with a cleansing astringency.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212° (boiling) Steep Time: 3-4 min.

"This seems to have been grown at high elevation, because the infused leaves are green like Nuwara Eliya or Darjeeling. Orange-copper, light for a Kenyan tea. Most suited to afternoon enjoyment." Goat Tea
