Very strong tea. It can get very bitter so I just add a small teaspoon amount of the ground up leaves and leave it in for a few seconds (around 45 seconds). I always have this with sweetener (honey) and it helps to have milk with it too. Comparing this with African Pride Tea and Chai Bora (both are ground up leaves), this is the most bitter. The other two are not bitter and can be steeped longer. I can’t wait to go back to Tanzaniaand buy some more this summer!

I’m a medical resident who happens have an addiction to tea! My tea collection keeps growing and growing, which just means that I’ve got to drink more tea! When life gets a bit too stressful, I love sitting down to a nice, warm cup of tea.

Swap: I am always up for swapping! Take a look at my cupboard and send me a msg! I always send extras since I have too much tea! :)

My cupboard contains all the teas that I own. The teas that are unrated but are in my cupboard are ones that I haven’t opened yet. :)
