This estate is located in the Livingstonia Mountains, at 6800 to 7200 feet above sea level, on the edge of the Great Rift Valley near Lake Nyasain in southern Tanzania. One of the first certified organic gardens in Tanzania, the Luponde tea estate has also been Fairtrade certified since 1994 and Rainforest Alliance certified since 2012.
These black OP leaves open into large brown leaves when brewed with a slight cinnamon spice aroma. The amber cup has a bright taste with a good body and a flavorful slight tobacco taste. This well-balanced cup is a great way to start the day!
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3-5 minutes.
My Favorite S&V African Tea thus Far
This is my favorite S&V African black tea thus far. I've enjoyed and have reviewed Malaika OP and Milikma too. But Tananzania Luponde is my 5 Star personal favorite. I even bring it along when I travel. I enjoy the black-pepper like spice and its restrained dry finish. The leaves have power for second steepings, and thus far it's the only organic S&V African black tea. Certainly enough for 5 stars, in my book.
Black tea with a bit of smokiness
This is a fine African black tea. It's most noticeable feature is a note of tobacco/smokiness. Reminded me a bit of the smell of plum tobacco for a pipe. However, don't let this put you off, it's a subtle smell and this is not a real smoky tea. Otherwise it is a solid cup of tea that is fun to drink. Organic and Fairtrade, as well, so this tea deserves attention.
