Tea is one of Tanzania's most important agricultural products, along with cloves, cashews, coffee, and corn.
This beautiful oolong comes from the tea plantations that have settled on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro.
The tea leaves are picked by hand, have a nice structure, open and brown-black in color.
The color as well as the scent and flavor of this Tanzania Oolong are very special. The tea is aromatic and scents and tastes slightly like malt, is slightly creamy sweet and has a hint of honey.
The color of the tea is reminiscent of the color of amber.
Did you know that tea can also be wonderfully combined with savory foods?
I put it to the test with a delicious piece of old Cantal cheese, brought from the beautiful Auvergne in France. Cantal cheese has a strong taste. Spicy, slightly salty and with full tones in which a creamy, almost vanilla-like hint can be detected. Curious how it tastes in combination with an Oolong from Tanzania?

Last week one of our nicest customers, Chloe, came by for a pleasant conversation at our tea table.
Chloe started a podcast last year where she interviews people who play a role in her life. Today it was my turn and I was allowed to elaborate for more than half an hour about one of my great passions ... tea. Follow our conversation on Spotify!
I think every parent encounters this at some point. Isn't there a better alternative to lemonade or fruit juice for your kids? Even the healthy drinks are often still full of sugars and artificial additives. Tasty, but not really healthy. Offering only water is not always an option either. As a mother of two young daughters, I was always faced with this dilemma. Fortunately, as the owner of a tea shop, the solution was close at hand!
