Harambee Black is a Kenyan black tea whose dry leaves have a distinct spicy-malty aroma. The leaves are large and long, and are loosely curled into slender wisps. I prepared my tea using my standard black tea approach of boiling water and a three minute infusion. The tea is a vibrant copper reddish-brown color. This is, without a doubt, an assertive tea. It is a strong, bold and rather heavy black tea. The flavor is primarily malty with hints of caramel-like sweetness and sweet fruits. As described on the Joy's teaspoon website, this tea lacks any bitterness. I found the flavor to be a bit too heavy for my personal preferences, and therefore found the addition of a splash of cream and a spoonful of sugar to be just about necessary. The tea's full-body and bold flavor make it an ideal tea for those that are accustomed to drinking coffee, as well as to those that like to add milk and/or sugar to their brew. Although the flavor was a bit too assertive for me, I can still say that this is a quality brew and one I would recommend to someone looking for a full-bodied black tea.
