Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Normally the yield per acre is lower that when fertilizers or others inputs are utilized, and the leaf can be slightly more mixed than non-organic teas. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a high level - such is the case with this tea. Tanzania is a poor country and the use of pesticides and fertilizers is rare even in the Njombe district. In view of this the step to organic husbandry was fairly simple.

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. It's an interesting and flavorful tea, which is perfect for afternoon tea or early morning 'cuppas'.
