This one is good too, I liked the other tanzanian tea i had and this one is just as good.

does it tastes closer to assam? Ceylon? or Chinese black teas? Teas always seems to capture either teas essence albeit a bit stronger.

It tastes pretty much like the Natural Tanaznia I had the first time, I liked it alot, I have the Assam also from Keyhung Estates but I havent tried it yet I’ll prolly have it in the morning :)


I’m no expert. I’ve only had Tanzanian tea once before. To me it was less malty and less astringent than some Assams. but smaller leaf teas like the Tanz can become bitter quickly so you do have to be careful. Tanz teas have a unique sweetness to them.


They are not like China blacks at all.

As for me, I prefer it clear (w/o milk). This tea gives the lie to Orwell’s claim that China tea isn’t as brisk, refreshing or bracing as India or Ceylon tea. (Duh, it was originally used to blend English Breakfast Tea; no longer, I suppose because there are way less expensive teas available.)
