Kenya Marinyn FOP
Kenya, a country in East Africa, is known worldwide for its wildlife reserves, its lofty mountain peaks, and the high quality offerings from the country's tea gardens and coffee plantations. Located in the South West part of Kenya is the Kericho district, where its high altitude and almost daily rain showers create the perfect environment for tea growth. Kenya tea is a main staple in Irish and English tea blends, and for years it was mostly produced for the tea bag trade. For the past 10 years or so, the Kenya tea producers have been focusing on more orthodox producing to create high quality large leaf style teas.
The Kenya Marinyn estate makes this clonal black tea, and it has the style of a Darjeeling, but stronger. The neatly twisted, golden tippy leaves steep to a bright, robust, medium-bodied tea with a slight malty and fruity taste.
