Drink Me: Tea Runners, Ajiri Tea, Kenyan Black

I’ve been falling down on the tea reviews, but my collection of tea just keeps growing!  One of the selections from my Tea Runners club from a few months back is Kenyan Black Tea from Ajiri Teas.

Kenyan Black Tea is black tea grown in Kenya.

Kenyan Black Tea is available for $10.00 for 3.5oz/100g of loose leaf tea or for $9.00 for a box of 20 teabags. All profits from sales of Ajiri Tea are donated to the Ajiri Foundation, which pays school fees for orphans in western Kenya.

When I got this tea I wasn’t sure whether I would like it. Primarily, I was surprised that it was almost the consistency of coffee grounds.  I used a paper filter to brew up a cup and I was pleasantly surprised that it was delicious. It was a good strong black tea without a bitter finish.  I added a bit of sugar to mine, and I suspect this one would be excellent with a bit of milk or cream.  This was a really great find for Tea Runners and I suspect I’ll be trying more of Ajiri’s teas in the future.
