  • Harvested from the finest Kenyan tea plantations at the peak of growth
  • Three cups a day of a black tea such as this one may reduce your blood pressure levels
  • TGFOP is one of the highest possible quality grades for black tea

Description
 
You'll know exactly why this tea deserves such a long and unusual name when you admire the golden, thread-like tips on each unbroken leaf. When carefully brewed for only three to four minutes, an amazing sum of different flavors emerge with each sip. Sweet and sour fruits like currant are noticeable first, followed by a classic and crisp malt taste. There's even an unusual note that will remind you of how the earth smells when rain first begins falling. Unlike many lesser black teas, adding sweetener and milk won't hide these delicate aromas and flavors. This is why it has earned a 79 rating on Steepster.

Subtle flavor September 22, 2015
Reviewer: Mr Gumby from Medford, MA United States  
A good tea, but I found the flavor to be a bit mild and a little sweet.  I prefer a tea with a kick and a bold flavor.  This is not that type of tea.  Good for an afternoon sip.

Rich Black Tea August 12, 2015
Reviewer: Steven Jahncke from Owings Mills, MD United States  
The Kosabei TGFOP was a great deal for very richly flavored black tea.  I received the order fast.  It was well packed.

Absolute FAVORITE TEA June 26, 2015
Reviewer: A. B. from North Bethesda, MD United States  
Was so sad when this was out of stock for such a while, but at long last it is back! This is our daily cuppa: it can be brewed super-strong (our first cup of the day!) without getting bitter and it also does just fine at normal or partial strength: such a depth of flavor and it's great with milk. Delicious with everything from breakfast to dessert after a meal.

Favorite Capital Teas Straight Black Tea May 18, 2014
Reviewer: EB from Alexandria, VA United States  
I've tried a lot of the black teas sold by this company (both straight black and blended black).  This is definitely my favorite straight black tea and Presidential is my favorite black blend.  A friend of mine is from India.  I shared this Kosabei TGFOP with him and he said it reminded him of his childhood in India.  They are pretty particular about their tea over there and I think that comment speaks volumes for how good this tea is!
