Detail
This green tea from Meru, a city on the north-eastern slopes of Mount Kenya (1700 m) is a real success. It produces a lovely pale yellow liquor with delicious vegetal, vanilla, spicy, burnt, fruity notes at the back of the mouth, sustained by a very smooth texture.

In the past few years, directors of African plantations in Kenya, Malawi, as well as Rwanda and Burundi have been working to improve the quality of the tea they produce.
We have been observing these producers for a while now - their research and the progress they are making. We have now chosen a few “grand cru” from Africa which impressed us with their excellent quality.


François-Xavier Delmas' choice:
“A remarkable green tea from Kenya. The leaf has been shaped into balls, like some fine Chinese teas. In the cup, it produces a delicious fruity, vegetal, vanilla bouquet.”
