Kenya Kapkoros

Product code: CSTB-38

Here is a beautiful white tea with silky buds from the Rift Valley in Kenya. This terroir has the ideal climatic conditions for growing tea. Amongst these, our favourite, the high altitude. A Chinese cultivar was established there to produce this Yin Zhen style and the result is simply magnificent.

Its liquor is rich and complex, typical of teas where the first shoots are present, both oily and fresh, with a slightly pinkish hue. It reveals subtle marine (shellfish) and fruity (peach) notes. 

Each sip calls for another.
