Description
 
Flavour profile: Light and fresh delicate green tea flavour with notes of creamy grass and very little astringency.

Produced: Autumn/winter 2016
Origin: Tindaret Estate, Nandi district, Kenya.

Background: Located close to the Tindaret forest and overlooked by Mt Tindaret, this estate lies in S.W Nandi district - a beautiful part of Kenya. The milder hillside climate combined with rich red volcanic soil makes for superb tea cultivation. Produced just after the short rains later in the year, our green tea has a fresh and lively taste brought about by these great growing conditions!
Brewing guide: 2.5grams per 200ml, brewed at 70-80C for 2min30s. This equates to about 1 level tablespoon. Water should be caught just under the boil and add ¼ cold water to ¾ hot water to get the right temperature. This tea also tastes great cold infused in summer as iced tea. Try using 4grams per 300ml left for 5-6hours, and strain over ice.
