Golden Kenya Black Tea GFBOP from Upton Tea is no longer in their catalog but the closely searched and suggested teas that are seem to be their Milima Estate Kenya GFOP and Milima Estate Kenya OP in case you are interested in somewhat comparable teas.
As for my thoughts, opinions, and findings on Upton Tea’s Golden Kenya Black Tea GFBOP – they are as follows…
Golden Kenya Black Tea GFBOP infuses to a very dark brown and has a strong and sturdy black tea taste. Therefore I find it to be exceptional in the morning as a nice ‘wake me up’ tea. There are cocoa notes, too, especially on the end sip. There are deep and dark black plum notes that are barely there as well.
I once tried this iced and at the beginning of the sip found interesting floral notes as well. I though this was pretty fascinating as I didn’t notice those notes with the hot cuppa.
Golden Kenya Black Tea GFBOP from Upton Tea was a mighty fine offering and I hope they bring it back at some point. In the meantime I am looking forward to seeing if their other Kenyan Teas are comparable.
