It is always nice to have a steadfast bagged tea to grab quickly as I am trying to join the rat race on time in the morning. I am NOT naturally a morning person. The irony is that I start my commute at 6am. Bagged tea is my friend on those mornings when the snooze button was just too tempting…like this morning. Fortunately, Ringtons Kenyan Gold was there for the rescue!
Kenyan Gold is a lovely amber gold in the cup. The smell of the liquid is of lightly toasted biscuit and malt, which are my favorite notes in tea…so I was pleased that the smell translated wonderfully into the taste in the cup!
There is a slight astringency that touches the back of the tongue and adds to the “brightness” of this tea, but not so much that it leaves the tongue feeling dry. This tea accepted a touch of milk graciously and and deliciously as well. I steeped this for 3 minutes and it was “Goldilocks” strength….not TO strong and not TO weak. Just right for the tea drinker who likes a cuppa as a boost to their day, but not enough to knock their socks off. Ringtons Kenyan Gold is a bright and pleasant way to start your day, and I’m glad I did!
