Blue Sapphire

TGFOP is a shining example of the quality teas being produced on Kenya's top estates.

The flavour second to non exhibits a round lightly malted body with balanced touches of astringency and bakery notes.

In some remote corners of Africa stories are still told of a great stone of undeniable beauty, it was once set in the Ephod or sacred garment of the ancient Israelite tribe of Issachar. This stone is mentioned in the Book of Exodus as the sapir believed by many to be the root word of the English word sapphire.
As legend goes the stone went missing from the tribe, it was then smuggled out of Egypt and carried from one town to the next through jungles and deserts until finally finding a resting place somewhere in the lush hills of Kenya's Great Rift Valley

Unfortunately for local treasure hunters the exact whereabouts still remains a mystery, some say it is protected by leopards others say by bolts of lightning that strike the ground whenever anyone comes near.

A visit to the Rift Valley would have you believing the lightening theory. The unique weather means the region is peppered by strikes on a regular basis, with new nutrients and minerals deposited by the fires the tea bushes thrive.

The name of one of Kenya's most important tea growing regions Tinderet translates into English as The Place of Lightening. Tinderet also happens to be home to some of the finest teas in Africa, (it is no coincidence). In tribute to the legend of the ancient stone we offer a tea worthy of carrying the Sapphire name.
The tea is crisp and clean with a full bold body and mesmerizing amber hue, as a means of representing the deep blue colour of the Sapphire
cornflower petals are added to the perfectly graded leaf for visual appeal and an added neutral mellow character.
