Our Review
One of the classic BLT blends (British Legacy Teas) is the marriage of Ceylon and India to make a strong tea that can handle milk and sugar. This version creatively recombines to be the tea of Ceylon and Kenya. The Kenyan style of tea-making resembles the Indian tea used in that blend. It makes any time that you see the Big Red Sun rise a very pleasant time!
Dry Leaves This is a blend of two teas. The Kenilworth, a big-leaf Ceylon, accounts for the larger leaves in this blend. Also there are some golden tips from the Kenyan tea.
Liquor A medium brown.
Aroma A nice blended aroma of honey with lemon tones. There are also faint clove spice notes.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This is a nicely fulfilling body; your mouth is full, but not too full.
Flavors The mellow dark honey flavors of the Kenilworth are complemented by the citrus and spice of the Kenyan Milima.
Brewing Time 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Big Red Sun

This full-bodied yet mellow tea is a great way to welcome the sun each morning. We have chosen Kenya and Kenilworth for this blend. The golden tips of Milima are reminiscent of Assam and the bold leaves of Ceylon's Kenilworth are very mellow.

Very satisfying; full-bodied, but not too strong
Average Review:

I just received a sample of this tea, and I will be buying more. It has a smooth feel, and doesn't get bitter if you prefer a stronger cup of tea.

Can't think of a better tea too drunk on a cold snowy morning with a good book. A tea to savor and enjoy

Firework
Average Review:

This tea brings to mind a firework... comes out as a big bang and then fizzles out. The initial taste is great but it doesn't through the mouth. Starts off like a perfect Ceylon tea but ends up tasting like Lipton. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either.
