Tanzania BOP CTC Explained
Tanzania is based on the eastern coast of Africa bordering the Indian Ocean and home to Mount Kilimanjaro.
In Tanzania, there are more than 25,000 smallholder tea farmers which contribute to a third of the country’s output.
Tanzania has a great climate for growing tea in part to its warm, tropical weather with seasonal patterns of precipitation.
Most Tanzanian tea is produced through the CTC (Crush-Tear-Curl) method which is known for its strong and spicy taste.
Tanzanian tea is typically used on its own for a strong, morning brew or blended with other lighter teas to provide strength & vigour, much like Assam.
Tanzania Broken Orange Pekoe is a coarsely grained tea which results in a strong, robust, spicy taste with a red coloured cup.
If you like a strong black tea, Tanzania BOP is the perfect choice and a great alternative to an Assam Black Tea.
