About Williamson Tea

Williamson Tea is a tea company tracing back to 1869. Williamson Tea owns farms and factories in Kenya, although it also sells tea from other regions, both single-origin and in blends.

Williamson Tea has begun implementing sustainable practices for harvesting firewood, which is used in their plants in Kenya. Their goal is to have enough firewood production, from eucalyptus gum trees, to fully fuel their plants by 2015.[1]

Nov. 2nd, 2022

The round, tagless tea bags are packed into a sealed mylar pouch, but aren't individually wrapped. The freshly opened pouch smells of bergamot, but isn't as fruity as Williamson's Duchess Grey. The bergamot has an aroma that is present in the Duchess Grey, but otherwise unique to Willamson. It's fruity, but almost has ...

I tried this a year ago and it was an inexpen...

A bold and powerful tea but with some complexity. Fine broken leaf. Infuses quickly...I recommend one and a half minutes, and using less than a teaspoon of leaves. However, if you enjoy a stronger cup, this tea does not get as astringent as you might expect if you brew it longer.
