I am fairly biased toward Tanzanian teas. This one is great! The tea bits look different than the usual cut up ones. They resemble small pellets. The scent is a nice, malty, sweet scent. I love this tea! This tastes exactly like the teas I’ve had there. It is a really dark brew and needs sugar and/or milk. I made this with cardamom last night as well. I need to go buy some milk! :)
Tanzania Organic Tea
Tanzania is a relatively small producer of tea in world terms. The teas produced are somewhat similar to Kenyan teas in that they have malty tending fruity/flavory characteristics. The production is primarily CTC (cut, torn and curled) which produces a fuller bodied tea but a non traditional (from a specialty tea perspective) visual appearance. This tea is produced in northern Tanzania close to the Kenyan border and not far from a wild life area called The Ngorongo Crater. The soil conditions and altitude combine to give the tea the flavor notes. An interesting and flavory tea which is perfect for afternoon tea or early morning ‘cuppas’.
