From the Kericho plantation in Western Rift Valley, Kenya, a single factory produces Milima tea using the orthodox method. Fair trade black tea, grown at 6000 feet above sea level and picked early in the morning.
The leaves are dark, twisted and contain a lot of golden buds. The best quality tea is produced at this place; it gives an orange-red liqueur, rich and shiny, full-bodied, a little floral, malted reminiscent of an Assam or a Darjeeling of late picking.
Beautiful astringency in the mouth. A very good tea for the morning.
