This is our signature best-selling blend of black Chinese teas from Yunnan and Anhui Provinces. Our tea blender grew up on a farm in Kentucky and many of his earliest memories revolved around the smell of freshly-plowed earth, the leather on a horse's saddle or the hayloft of a barn. He wanted to create a tea that reminded him of those experiences. This full-bodied tea is a wonderful cup for breakfast or afternoon tea. Rich and earthy, it will remind you of a morning walk in the Kentucky countryside - thoroughbreds not included. This is Rick Dees Top 40 Blend. Also available in pyramid sachets.

I keep coming back to this.

This is one of my two favorite teas. The other is a flavored tea from a competitor. This is the ONLY unflavored tea in my rather large collection. It makes me think (fondly) of Kentucky. I have waylaid tea drinkers in restaurants to recommend they try it. You just can’t go wrong with Kentucky Blend.

This tea is a pleasant surprise! It certainly grew on me as I came to appreciate the "return to primitive production of tea" flavor and aroma. "Kentucky strong," I would say. "Misty mountains of Kentucky." A kick in the morning that I appreciate.
Robust and Smooth

This most reminds me of the Yunan teas I used to buy direct from China. What makes it distinctive is the middle notes -- it's very robust, somewhat earthy without the tinniness or acidity you sometimes find in stronger blends. I drink it over ice exclusively and in 20 years of buying high-end tea, have not found one I like better.
Delicious and best quality tea

As expected from Elmwood Inn, Delicious and best quality tea.
Good rich tasting tea.

Using the right amount of tea and correct brewing time, produced a tea I enjoy more than Earl Grey or English Breakfast. Nice strong brew, rich flavor with no bitterness.
