100% buds from Kenya styled after the Chinese Dian Hong

With a nod to the Chinese tradition of golden-bud teas, this exceptionally complex black tea captures the essence of its African terroir with an exuberant spectrum of native flavors. An aromatic call of the wild that pairs cocoa with walnut, oak with aniseed, and pear with citrus.

Excellent alternative to Dian Hong

This has quickly become one of my go-to orders at P&T. Dian Hongs are great but they can sometimes be almost *too* sweet; here, the taste is very similar to a Dian Hong but with a hint of astringency that makes it perfect

Very good

Quite similar to yunnan gold, both are quite malty, yet different enough to order both ;) The aftertaste is definitely more fruity (in a sour way, not sweet) whereas yunnan has a more caramelly aftertaste. I would recommend this one for summer and spring, and yunnan for fall and winter.

Great black tea

Although the notes are not really strong (rather mild) they are easy to spot/taste. Really enjoyed it.

Great Savanna

Probably my favourite of all P & T teas. Delicious and different. You should sell it in bigger aroma bags: 50 gr. is too little and I always have to buy two or three of them at a time ;-)

Unique tea from Kenya

Interesting tasting notes, worth trying.
