Description

Kambaa Estate Tea - Loose Leaf Pouches

The Kambaa Estate Tea blend from English Tea Store has a very malty flavor with light hints of currant. Tea was introduced to Kenya only after India gained independence in 1947. At that time, a number of tea planters emigrated to the country which was then still part of the British Empire. Despite a ban on the transfer of plants and husbandry information, these planters brought tea bushes with them to start new gardens. The Indian plants soon began to thrive in the Kenyan climate, particularly east of the Rift Valley.

98% or more of this tea comes from estates that are part of the Ethical Tea Partnership. The ETP is an initiative started within the tea industry to monitor and regulate living and working conditions on estates around the world.

I've tried a number of strong dark teas, and this is my favorite.
Good plain, or with soy milk and date sugar.
Has a good malty flavor, not too bitter. it must have a substantial amount of caffeine, which is what I like in the morning.

This is a dark, heavy, strong cup of surprisingly good smoothness. It's got not near the amount of tannins one might guess by looking at it but there is of course tannin. The reason I call it "a meal in a cup" is that it has so many complex top notes, butter, nuts, corn, wood, something kinda like mushroom but rounder. It's definitely suited to savory foods. It's a good breakfast tea. It's a bit addictive too. I imagine it stands up well iced too. I like it and recommend it.

A friend introduced me to this tea, serving it with a generous portion of milk and sugar. The tea brewed a deep red and stood up well to milk. Surprisingly strong and malty, a morning favorite. Rich, malty treat

I’ve been ordering this tea since my daughter turned me on to your company. Nothing else compares to it and every morning I look forward to my "tea ceremony". I’ve started to give packets to friends who are tea drinkers and they all agree that it is a superior blend. TEA AS IT SHOULD BE

Last Xmas Eve we took a pound of Kambaa tea to my sister's. After a couple of glasses of wine, I brewed a pot fully expecting to be the only one to be drinking it. One by one people began trying it, and soon a room full of Xmas revellers began asking: "Can you make more of that tea?" I can't say I started a Christmas tradition, but we can't drink Kambaa anymore without thinking of that night. Smooth full-bodied perfection

Can’t really describe the taste, but anyone who loves malty, semi-sweet tea with milk will appreciate this. I don’t drink it every morning because I always spend too long enjoying it, and then I’m late for work! Strong and complex

I always gravitate toward strong Assam teas, and I bought the Kambaa at a local store to start branching out. Unlike many reviewers on here, I prefer something smoother in the mornings, and I save the Kambaa for an evening treat. If the tea seems overly bitter or strong, try putting fewer leaves in the pot and/or brewing it for less time; doing so does an awesome job of taming this beast. Hot, it stands up great on its own with no sugar or milk (if you’re brave enough). Since it packs so much of a caffeine punch, I always have some left over, which I put into the fridge; iced, it goes wonderfully with a tiny bit of lemon. This tea has become one of the staples in my cupboard. Big, strong taste

This tea is a good choice for someone who likes a strong tea. In my opinion Assam tea is a better tea because it has a nice aroma and a better taste. For me Kambaa does not have any aroma and is lacking the depth of flavor comparing to Assam, but it is still a good choice for strong tea lovers. Good strong tea

I have ordered this tea for a couple years now. It is a dark, strong, robust tea, but does not seem to give me a huge caffeine stimulus, which is good for me at times, because caffeine can sometimes make me shaky. One of my Favorite Teas

I am having a cup now. Fantastic for those mornings when I can't seem to get the old body in gear. A rich, dark red color with a taste to match. Such a satisfying brew - strong, rich taste with a mellow tempering. Perfect for mornings or mid-afternoon breaks when you need a little something to help gain mental clarity.
