Introducing one of our new green teas.

Luponde Estate sits at an elevation of around 7000m in the Livingstonia Mountains in Tanzania. It is one of the oldest organic tea estates in the world.

Established in 1954 it covers over 2000 hectares of sustainable agriculture and is the primary source of employment within the area. Luponde’s 400 hectares of green tea has been farmed organically long before the practice became fashionable. The estate is a driver of rainforest protection and re-establishment in the area.

The Green Tea is equivalent to a fine Sencha in grade. It is light, fresh and a little fruity in its taste, sweeter than comparable Sencha teas.
