Scotty and all,
Just finishing up my first pot of the Kenya tea. I was very surprised with it. I was half expecting a fairly strong blend but it's on par with your typical Ceylon, etc. It's very tasty, sweet and extremely smooth. There is not a hint of bitterness in this tea. After trying it, I can see how much Kenyan tea is used in so called English Breakfast blends now a days. I'll bet it's over half the blend, especially in the cheaper bagged blends. Good stuff in loose form, though, and I'm glad I tried it.
So, in all, I was pretty happy with my Special Teas order.
