This is not one of the tiny CTC teas like a lot of the African teas are. The leaves are not huge, but still much larger than you find in most standard tea bags. There is an odd taste to this – fishy? Lake-y? Lake-y, I think is the best way to describe it. Woody and lake-y. It is a fairly consistent taste across Tanzanian teas I have had. All the bagged teas I had while over there had this same flavor profile. Not sure if this is because maybe the bagged teas I had were all made with Livingstonia Estate teas (doubtful), or if it is the terrior there that leads to the similar flavor.
Regardless this is a perfectly acceptable cup of tea. Nothing awesome, nothing standout, nothing to keep around but nothing to refuse a cup of. :)
