About the Artisans:

Kenyans love roasted meat, be it beef, chicken or goat, and some Kenyan nomadic societies center life around the ownership of cattle.

Talented Kenyan craftspeople utilize cow bones to create bold adornments that beautifully represent the nation's appreciation for cattle.

JusTea® Trios bring together three delicious flavors of Kenyan tea in one gorgeous gift set! The Herbal Tea Trio contains three interlocking tins filled with JusTea's carefully crafted Chamomile Dream, Little Berry Hibiscus, and Peppermint Detox loose-leaf teas.

Each trio tin includes a hand-carved wild olive wood spoon, information about the small-scale tea production in Kenya, and steeping instructions for each flavor. Unit Size: Each trio contains about 45 cups of loose leaf tea (15 cups per flavor). Avg. 90g

Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 205°F water for 3 mins.

JusTea is dedicated to maintaining the whole tea leaf rather than the normal maceration which destroys much of the leaf’s natural complexities and depth. This allows the tea to be steeped multiple times, retaining the full flavor profile that whole leaf tea offers.
