From Marks & Spencer Tea

This fresh tasting pure origin Kenyan uses teas from the Makomboki and Gacharage in the central highlands, where the climate is perfect for growing teas of real distinction. Produced by smallholder cooperatives, this tea has a wonderfully vibrant and refreshing flavour.

M&S Fairtrade Kenyan tea is rated 2 for medium strength. There are 40 teabags in each carton.

This is an excellent tea bag. It’s strong like a Kenyan should be, and a little bitter so it needs milk certainly. Once it has milk in it, it reminds me a bit of good quality chocolate. It still has that bitterness, but that’s a good thing in a smooth, comforting drink like this. If it was a note, it would be a low note, but not a rumble of thunder, more like a tuba.

I’m not convinced that any of these analogies make sense to anyone else, but they work for me!

I need to agree with some other opinions written about this tea : these are excellent tea bags (in my opinion most probably the best quality and taste you can get from a teabag available nationally in a major store)… and when I finished the first box I bought (without writing about it in steepster), I bought another one. As someone else said : the Kenyan tea is quite strong, and in UK this implies mostly that people add milk…I like my tea black, but indeed, better steep it a short time if you want to avoid it getting too strong (I don´t really think it gets too bitter, it gets “deeper” if that makes any sense). It´s quite funny : when I bought the tea, the cashier at M&S told me that he had lived in Kenya and that he really believed that one of the better teas (and coffee) came from there, but that in general they are underrated. The strength of the tea is rated as 2, and I agree again with a comment I read on steepster that some teas rated 2 actually seemed smoother than some rated 3 (the same applies for M&S´s single estate Rwandan Rukeri teabags). I compare both with coffee (as I like it : strong and full-bodied).

I used to have this in loose leaf form and it made great iced tea. We arrived at the house we are renting in Derry and there was a box of the teabags waiting in the cabinet. I found a wee metal pot and we have been downing it every morning before going put adventuring.

As long as you keep the steep short, this is okay plain. Take it longer and you will a any a bit of milk. Oddly, I once found strength number 3 to be smoother than 2. Don’t know if I would still feel that way.
