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. Kenyan butchers are happy to have eager hands to take useless bones off their hands, so they sell these unexpected craft materials to artisans for a small pittance. Talented Kenyan craftspeople utilize cow bones to create bold adornments that beautifully represent the nation's appreciation for cattle.

A sip of this rich, fresh, and smooth whole leaf black tea transports you to the lush, jade tea gardens at the foot of Mt Kenya. Grown on small Kenyan farms where no pesticides are ever sprayed on the tea leaves, Mt. Kenya Black Tea carries strong and malty tasting notes hinting of cocoa beans and dried fruit and is highly caffeinated. Sweet and complex on its own but equally superb with a splash of milk and sugar, Mt. Kenya Black is also delicious as an iced tea!

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.

Each 90g tin includes a hand-carved wooden spoon and makes about 40 cups or when re-steeping, 80 cups. A recyclable refill pouch is now also available. Steeping Instructions: 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of 205°F water for 3 mins.

JusTea® Trios bring together three delicious flavors of Kenyan tea in one gorgeous gift set! The Black Tea Trio contains three interlocking tins filled with JusTea's exquisite African Chai, Kenyan Earl Grey, and Mt. Kenya Black 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.
