Kenya: Lelsa (FBOP) – 100g


Categories: , Tags: , , , ,


The Lelsa Estate was planted in 1950, on land that was previously used to grow grey eucalytus, and faint hints are said to colour the profile of this tea. I’m not sure I pick that up, but this is a delicious black tea with floral notes, but also with a robust character and malty Kenyan edge, that takes milk well.

Kericho town is a sub-district of Tinderet, close to Mount Tinderet (place of thunder), situated just off the equator. It has 707 hectares growing tea.

I think I’ve just found my new breakfast tea 🙂

Brewing Guide: one heaped teaspoon (roughly 5g) with 200-260ml boiling water. Brew for 2-5 minutes depending on preferred strength.
