I tasted this tea from a “golden pouch” Bruu is adding to each tea subscription this year. I might order it in a bigger pouch as it´s a nice breakfast tea, malty but not too agressive (strong) as they sometimes are (especially the ones from Kenya and Tanzania). Elegant with a particularly long finish.

What Bruu themselves say on their website :
What it is? A malty black tea with a nutty character.
Why we love it? Luponde is much softer and more mellow than other Tanzanian teas, yet with an aromatic zest and a fine length of flavour.
Where it’s from? Njombe District, Tanzania. With a hot and humid eastern shore bordering the India Ocean, and a mountainous, densely forested area in the northeast, Tanzania is one of the most important tea-producing countries in Africa. It has a warm, tropical climate with seasonal patterns of precipitation – a perfect recipe for growing tea. Although much of Tanzania is too dry for tea, the Luponde Plantation flourishes in the high altitude.
How our drink hits the senses? A very light, malty and earthy aroma fills the senses.
The taste journey : A very mellow, fresh BRUU with a fine length of flavour. Luponde can be drunk with or without milk, we just love the versatility.

Flavors: Malt, Nutty
