From The Kent & Sussex Tea and Coffee Company

Tanzania has a great climate for growing tea and this is a good quality loose black tea that competes well with more well known East African rivals.

My husband was in UK for a month, so I took advantage of it to order some teas from The Kent&Sussex Tea&Coffee Co. This is the first of them I try after he returned here.
A typical breakfast tea, strong and malty. This is said to have a full spicy taste, but I mainly identify the spices in the nose. It´s in the nose where I mainly notice a difference with the more common Kenyan BOP.

Some information from the K&S T&C co website :
Tanzanian Tea – All You Need To Know
*Tea is the fourth largest export crop from this country.
*More than 30,000 smallholder farmers collectively produce a third of its output.
*Harvesting of Tanzanian Tea takes place year-round, providing a year round source.
*Its production, however, didn’t start until 1902 when German settlers first planted Tea in what was then known as German East Africa. It didn’t become commercially viable until 1926.
*Since attaining independence, Tanzania has predominantly grown Tea in the Southern Highland Zone, the North East Zone and the North West Zone.
