Kenya Black FBOP | Black Tea
Description: This black tea from the highlands of western Kenya is smooth, rich, and strong with a hint of juniper and delivers a bright, clean, refreshing cup of tea.
Kenya has the environment to produce some of the finest teas in the world. From the 1940's to the 1970’s, they did produce some of the best British style black teas. From the 1980's through the 2000's, they converted most of their tea industry from orthodox production (a more labor intensive, but higher quality approach to making tea) to CTC (machine) production. They also placed a stronger emphasis on increasing yield at the expense of quality. In the last 10 years there has been a movement in Kenya back toward higher quality. This tea is an example of this higher quality.
