Kangaita Estate

£8.00 sku LTKE0217-125 | Net weight: 125g

Loose Leaf Black Tea


Kangaita Tea Factory, on the southern slopes of Mount Kenya, is home to an orthodox black tea renowned as among Kenya's finest.  The lush equatorial plantation thrive all year round, the tropical climate tempered with cooling breezes and plentiful rainfall from clouds rising from Lake Victoria to the west.

Tea Description

Orthodox teas are rarely produced in Africa, and we think this is the best.  Orange Pekoe grade leaves are slightly twisted and fully oxidised, and when brewed give a full flavoured liquor, rich red in colour and yet refreshingly light in body.  Its mellow malty taste has hints of spice and cirtus fruit.
