This Kenyan Black Tea from Justea is AMAZINGLY good. It’s so rich and malty and robust! It’s a strong, full-flavored cuppa deliciousness! And I’ve got to tell you that I really appreciate Justea’s approach to help the Kenyan farmers to develop their farms to be financially stable. Want to read more about that? Here’s an article that was published in a local newspaper about the launching of Justea’s fundraising campaign to help the Kenyan Farmers!
This tea brews to a beautiful coppery color and has a sweet, earthy aroma. The flavor is sweet and molasses-y, with a strong malty note and caramel tones. It is pleasantly sweet and warm with notes of spice and hints of earth. There is a distinct “bake-y” kind of note, like a freshly baked loaf of dark bread (think a sweet squaw bread!) I also taste notes that remind me of dates and dark raisins.
And while it does have a sweet taste to it, I like that it is also bold and rich. It has that gusto that I look for in a morning black tea – this would be an excellent tea to choose for your morning cup of motivation! I’m drinking it served straight up with no additions, but, it would also taste great with milk and honey if you like to add those to your morning cuppa! It would make a great latte!
A truly delightful cup of tea – this is a tea I’d be happy to start my day with every day!

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
