Does anyone here enjoy Kenyan black tea? I've had it before but it was mixed into English breakfast and another breakfast tea. I like how it tastes malty. I've had those teas plain and did not put milk or sugar into them.

They are for the most part low cost "blenders" ... and more often CTC. For many blends, they replaced more costly Ceylon and/or Assam.

I never had one that really impressed me. They usually seem to be somewhere between Assam and Ceylon in flavor profile.
