Introducing Emrok Nandi Royal Orthodox Tea

Emrok tea from Culinaryteas.comA very special tea, our new Emrok Nandi Royal Orthodox Tea has a mellow liquor with muscatel overtones.  The aroma has an elegant and delicate citrus fragrance.   Darjeeling lovers should try this tea! 

Emrok Tea (Ogirgir Estate) is growing in Nandi County in Kenya’s Rift Valley region. It was established in 1962 consisting of 1,000 acres of purely clonal tea. Situated at an altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level, the cold climate and volcanic soil is favorable for tea growing and accounts for the excellent quality of the tea. 

Emrok Tea is a family-owned business by Robert and Emily Keter, whose extended family have decades of experience making Kenyan tea. Robert himself was a long-distance runner, a shining example of entrepreneurship and together as a family they are dedicated to serving their community and improving the many lives they touch.

This tea was awarded Best Specialty Tea from Kenya at the ‘GOLD MEDAL TEA COMPETITION FOR SPECIALTY TEAS’ held in San Antonio, Texas and organized jointly by the American Tea Association and the Canadian Tea Association.  
The official name is Emrok, SFTGFOP- 1 (Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe Grade 1) which is of course a mouthful.  We believe it will be a mouthful of delicious tea for you to try!
