In Love with #JusTea

Mount Kenya Black is the first tea I have tried from Justea and I’m already in LOVE. I adore the tins, the labels, the packaging, the SPOONS, and of course the Mount Kenya Black from Justea!

Before I get to the tasting notes I have to point out that this tea has one and only ingredient and that is 100% Rainforest Alliance Kenyan Black Tea. It’s certified. It’s also Non-GMO Project Verified. PLUS this company is a Fair Trade Federation Member. Mount Kenya Black Tea from Justea is small-scale farmer grown, pesticide-free, and no chemicals were ever sprayed on the tea leaves! This is a tea and company I can get behind for sure!

As for the tasting notes and profile – it’s just as impressive! This tea is strong and malty and reminiscent of cocoa and dried fruit such as plums/prunes or raisins. The caffeine is HIGH and makes for a great hearty morning steep or an nice eye-opener during your afternoon lull

This is a black tea that I was able to get 2 spiffy infusions out of! Something I’m always impressed by if a black tea can pull it off that is! I really like the strength of this tea but also the way it’s smooth at the same time. This is a REAL WINNER all the way around!

Here’s the scoop!

Leaf Type:  Black Tea
Where to Buy:  JusTea

Mt. Kenya Black: A sip of our whole leaf black tea transports you to the lush, jade tea gardens at the foot of Mt Kenya. This rich black tea is fresh and smooth, but packs a serious hit of flavour. Sweet and complex on its own, but equally superb with a splash of milk and sugar. Also delicious as an iced tea!

Kenya Emrok Factory FTGFOP1 from Capital Tea Limited

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!
