Milima Black is a Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe (FBOP) tea with ‘tip,’ from the highlands of Kenya.
This tea has a distinct bright color and flavor, thanks to the country's tropical climate and rich volcanic soils. Kenya’s rich, deep reddish soil has a high mineral content in which the tea bushes thrive. The high altitude of the sweeping ridges where the tea is farmed contributes to this teas high antioxidant content.
Milima Black is strong and bold. This tea tolerates being drank plain or with milk.
Use 1 tsp of tea leaves (2-3 grams) per 8 oz. water, 200-210 F.
Steep in for 3 minutes.
To cold brew use 1-2 teaspoons of tea leaves (2-3g) per 8 oz. of room temperature water. Store covered, in the refrigerator, for 6-12 hours. Strain, and enjoy over ice.
