Tanzania Broken Orange Pekoe Black Loose Leaf Tea Strong Traditional African Tea That Takes Milk.


  • This Tanzanian Broken Orange Pekoe is a remarkably good quality C.T.C tea from East Africa.
  • Assam is best known for Cut Torn Curled teas and Africa used  to only produce low value tea for the mass market, but this little beauty is definitely able to give any quality Assam a run for their money.
  • Tanzania has a particularly favourable climate for tea growing, with two of the main growing areas around the Rift Valley, either side of Lake Victoria to the north of Tanzania and between Lake Malawi and Lake Rukwa to its north, at an elevation of 2600 feet.
  • This East African tea is quite a coarse grained BOP and when infused for about four and a half minutes at 100o C makes for a tea that Helen describes as, “being really sturdy but not chewy, it's malty and is a really good typical African, but definitely needs milk.”
  • You will receive 100 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 50 cups of tea. Two gram per cup, this tea can be re-infused quite happily giving 100 cups of tea. This works out at between ten pence per cup and five pence per when re-infused
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
