I’m a fan of Black Teas – as many of you may already know. I’m a fan of tasting teas from different countries and estates, too! So of course I was excited to try Kenya Emrok Factory FTGFOP1 from Capital Tea Ltd. One thing I couldn’t recall was that if I have ever had a tea from Nandi Hills in West Kenya, specifically, and that is where this tea hails from.
Kenya Emrok Factory FTGFOP1 from Capital Tea Ltd. is harvested in December and the leaves are tri-colored in different shades of brown and what I would consider to be a khaki type color. The infused leaves leave behind a lovely shade of tea water.
The flavor on the tongue is just as impressive – if not more. I could pick up notes of citrus and honeysuckle but also wet-woodsy hits as well. Kenya Emrok Factory FTGFOP1 from Capital Tea Ltd. is right up there with some of my favorite Kenyan teas. I would certainly recommend it!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Black Tea
Where to Buy: Capital Tea Limited
Sensational well made leaf grade tea from the Nandi Hills in West Kenya. Harvested in December, these wiry leaves produce a bright liquoring, elegant and refined tasting tea with a captivatingly lively mouth feel, ample body and a well balanced complex flavour profile with notes of citrus, malt and honeysuckle. A very enjoyable all day tea that is highly recommended!
