Full leaf black tea from a farming cooperative in the Nandi Hills of Kenya. Hand processed, some of the finest hand crafted tea I’ve seen come out of this country. Sourced from my dear friend Boaz Karan.

Adventaggen Day 2: Tea 7/7

Gongfu!

One of the reasons (among several) that I chose World Tea House’s advent was because I was hoping there would be quite a few teas in the assortment that would work gongfu so that I didn’t have to go almost a month with next to no gongfu brewing. I was very pleased to see this full leaf Kenyan tea in the assortment because it seemed PERFECT for steeping gongfu!

Most of the teas I’ve tried from World Tea House have actually been African black teas so this was definitely more familiar than probably most of what I’ll taste in Phil’s advent this year. I liked it quite a bit though! The liquor was very viscous and syrupy with just a bit of a tannic/astringent edge at the finish. I got notes of stewed and brandied red fruits and stonefruit along with a little citrus and hony, and then quite a bit of malt and leather. I loooovvveee the combination of syrupy red fruit and leather notes in tea so that was such a satisfying consistent throughout the session.

I honestly probably could have brewed my session longer, but I stopped after five steeps because I had other teas to get to for Adventageddon…
