Ajiri Black Tea
My favorite tea.
One of my prized possessions is a cleaning rag, extra raggedy with a large hole, a remnant from a circa 1960s bath towel.
When I was little my sister and I would have tea parties at my grandmas house. A towel was always draped over the tray for the inevitable spills that were made while we mixed more milk and sugar than tea into our fancy tea cups. My cleaning rag is a remnant of one of those tea party towels.
I signed up for a tea sampler subscription box, Sips By hoping to find a signature black tea. As soon as Ajiri arrived in the box, I canceled my subscription and have only purchased Ajiri, it is simply the best.
For a black tea it is incredibly smooth because they only harvest the top two leaves, nothing lower and no stems.
With your purchase a donation is made to the Ajiri Foundation, which provides school fees and programming for orphans in western Kenya.
