From Stylin' Tea

Grandpa Arthur Nijuguna Komo was born in 1901 and is the oldest living tea farmer in the world. He started tea farming in 1959 and since then has not only developed high quality tea on his own estates, but has mentored and assisted many other tea farmers in the area over the years. This tea is a hearty and organic black tea from Kamunyaka settlement in Thika District next to the Kieni Forest. It is as strong as Grandpa’s Anytime Tea and much debate is out there as to which one gives more of a caffeine boost. I think this one is the slightly mellower version but I have a customer who thinks it is the opposite. Since the customer is always right I will leave it at that. I love them both. This tea is herbicide and pesticide free since Grandpa wouldn’t have it any other way!
This tea is also good with milk and sweetner.

Grandpa’s Afternoon Tea from Stylin’ Teas is exactly what it promises to be, but that almost sounds like an oxymoron: a robust afternoon tea? Aren’t afternoon teas supposed to be a bit lighter than other teas? Well, this tea has a bit lighter of a mouthfeel than Grandpa’s Anytime Tea (it’s elusive “sister” tea) but maaaaaan, it’s still a wonderful cup of wholesome malty goodness that most tea drinkers might say is strong. Steeped at 1 minute, there is little astringency, and a flavor profile that will stand up to breakfast, lunch or dinner. I find it calmly invigorating. (which would be the second oxymoron in this review!) If you like robust tea that fills your mouth with flavor and makes a great partner for your bagel, or oatmeal on a chilly fall day, you just might want to try this tea. I prefer these Kenyan teas to the average English Breakfast blend that I’ve experienced. I will be ordering more.

This tea is sold by a Nashville company that steals money from tea companies. Please do not buy tea from royal tea of Kenya. They are a fraudulent company.
