From TeaGschwendner

This charming, spicy tea from the Kericho district in Kenya is produced according to the traditional “orthodox” method, a true exception in a market dominated by mass-production and machinery. Reddish brown cup with delightful notes of malt and fruit.

One heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 3 min.

This is a simple tea that will neither dazzle nor disappoint, but will not supplant your morning startup cup or take the place of those you crave. The tea is medium bodied and lighter than black teas from other regions. The flavor is muted malt with a hint of spiciness, and it brews quickly to almost an Assam-like red hue and aroma, but certainly not as full in the mouth as an Assam. I do not find myself drinking this tea at the expense of others in my cupboard but instead have become rather fond of using this tea as a component in black and black/green blends, especially japanese sencha. Due to its lighter body, it has turned out to be excellent for blends that include safflower, sunflower, tropical fruits, citrus, marigold, among others. This translates into some interesting and refreshing iced teas that do not consume your more expensive teas which are best served hot.

A nice anytime tea. A light, quiet cup. The Kenya Milima doesn’t possess too much body and the flavor is simple: a light malt with fruit in the background. There’s a slight briskness on the sides of the palate with a drying finish that lingers, while leaving the mouth clean. Overall, recommended if you’re looking for a good morning time, plalate cleansing tea.

Backlogging from wednesday, and it’s a sipdown! I rarely have this one pure, and I didn’t this time, either – there wasn’t enough left, so I added some of the Black Oothu.
Maybe I’ll have it on its own at some point in the not-too-far future – even though I rarely do that, I like my Assam/Kenia too much to not stock up on this, anyway.

A traditional smooth assam. Nice but unremarkable.

It’s an okay standby tea, fairly light considering the kind of black tea it is, not great for consumption on it’s own and benefits greatly from being blended and or adding milk and sugar. Tasty, but there are other similar black teas at this price point I like a good bit more.
