This Grand Cru was harvested in Kirinyaga county, Kenya. Its leaves are gathered from Assamica tea plants, and are moderately oxidised. The tea benefits from exceptional volcanic soil that is rich in minerals and thus perfect for encouraging tea plant growth.
A sweet oolong with a dash of acidity which develops nutty, toasted, vegetal and floral notes.
