Commercial Description

This tea yields a smooth, well-balanced liquor with a dark amber hue and fruity nuances in the aroma. The wiry leaves have a moderate complement of golden tips. African teas of this style have been popular but elusive, as many estates in Africa have discontinued production of quality Orthodox teas.

Brewing Instructions: (from Upton Tea Imports)

2¼ g/cup, 212°F, 3-5 min.

A mild, smooth tea that I prefer steeping for a longer time (around 5 minutes). Aroma is hard to describe, and I am not crazy about it, it has a sort of muted creaminess, but not in a light way. There's a notable absence of most of the tones that characterize black tea, inculding ones from Kenya. The flavor is very mild unless you steep it longer, and then it takes on a tannic edge with a bitter aftertaste.

The only thing I really like in this tea is that it produces an interesting explosion of aroma in the finish, suggestive of allspice or cinnamon.

Overall, I was less enthusiastic about it than other Kenyan teas from Upton. It's not terribly expensive, but there are considerably cheaper teas from Upton that I strongly prefer.
