Britain is famously a nation of tea lovers with many of us drinking up to five cups of our favourite brew each day. Nearly half of us drink popular blended tea brands, but do you know where your tea leaves come from? It’s a well kept secret in your favourite cuppa, but most likely it will be Kenyan Tea.
Kenyan Tea is at the heart of many of Britain’s favourite teas blends, making up the 165 million cups of tea we drink each and every day in the UK. We’ve asked around to find out what makes your perfect cuppa, and while milky tea is still our favourite it seems we’re getting more adventurous. More are trying lemon or honey in a cuppa, while over a third of you are experimenting with the purer tastes of loose leaf, single estate and rare teas from around the world.
We’ve sent you three delicious Kenyan Teas with individual tasting notes and an essential tea brewing kit, so you can create your own perfect cuppa. Enjoy the teas on their own to discover the high quality and distinctive flavour of Kenyan Tea, or experiment to create your own personal perfect blend and discover what’s truly at the heart of a good cuppa.

Tea blending tips
- Work on the quantities of 1tsp of loose tea for a single cup, plus one for the pot. Steeping times will vary according to taste so try a little after two minutes or up to four for a stronger taste.
- Tea blending is a personal process, so try the teas separately in small amounts before blending to determine which taste you prefer.
- For a strong, malty taste try blending Milima with a small amount of the Kaamba loose leaf tea.
- For a fresh, crisp tea with an attractive bright colour blend Kenya Marinyn and Kenya Estate Milima Leaf Tea.
- Try the Marinyn and Kaamba teas together to offset some of the malty flavour for a bright, sweetish flavour.
