Our Review
Milima is Swahili for "In a high place". The tea plants that produce this tea grow at more than six thousand feet above sea level in the Kenyan Highlands. The leaves take on lovely flavors in the cool air and rocky soil. Unlike most teas in Africa, Milima is produced in the Orthodox method, so the leaves look like most of our other teas. Milima has led the revolution in Africa of making tea in the Orthodox method. We now offer a few choices of African teas, unlike five years ago.
Dry Leaves Small dark brown leaves with golden tips interspersed.
Liquor Deep reddish brown
Aroma A mixture of citrus and grass with faint clove notes.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This a medium bodied black tea.
Flavors Tending toward citrus, especially orange with a slightly spicy character of cloves and some pepper. Don't be afraid to add milk and sugar.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Kenya Milima

One of Africa's most elegant teas. The teas have golden tips and are reminiscent of fine Assams. The tea is light in body and is a mellow brew.

Silky Smooth!
Average Review:

I've tried many black teas and this one is my number one choice. Smooth, flavorful and zero bitterness. This is a nice surprise because I usually went for the China black teas. I drink all teas with sugar only. Sometimes unbleach turbinado sugar which gives it a slight molasses flavor which is great.



Smooth and flavorful
Average Review:

I was looking for a stronger black tea with flavor that didn't require a lot of sugar. This fits the bill. I used to drink Earl Grey or English Breakfast in the morning, but now this is my preferred cup. Stronger than Earl Grey but more flavorful than English Breakfast. It's a winner.



Just your average cup
Average Review:

If you like the standard cup of black tea, Kenya Milima is the tea to purchase. It has a slightly smoking taste that is balanced well with milk and sugar.
