Luponde is a fine African black tea from the Luponde estate in Tanzania. The Luponde tea estate was one of the first certified organic gardens in Tanzania, has been Fairtrade certified since 1994 and Rainforest Alliance certified since 2012. The large brown leaves brew up a bright copper cup with a slight cinnamon spice aroma and tobacco taste without being smoky. Overall it is a well balanced tea, excellent for starting your day or as an afternoon pick-me-up.

This tea contains caffeine.

Tea Brewing recommendations1-2 tsp/3-6 grams

8 oz/237 ml


3-5 minutes

Some teas are recommended for brewing with boiling water, while others are brewed at lower temperatures. Even when brewing a tea at a lower temperature, it is recommended that you first boil the water (to kill bacteria etc.) and then allow the water to cool to the correct temperature (ice cubes speed up the process). While you can certainly brew any tea with boiling water, it will change the flavor of the tea.

This tea was grown on the Luponde Estate in Tanzania.
