A Kenyan Grand Cru from the Kirinyaga region. It is harvested along the Mount Kenya volcano at over 1,800 metres above sea level. This particularly mineral-rich soil is ideal for growing tea plants. This tea is harvested in May.

A sweet and velvety black tea which develops honey, cocoa, polished and fruity notes with a subtle leather hint.
