Tanzania Tea Collection

As the first brand of Kazi Yetu, Tanzania Tea Collection sources, blends, flavours, and packages creative teas. Our flavours range from exotic spices in Zanzibar to dried citrus and herbs grown in small and large scale farms. A favourite in Tanzania is the chai with cinnamon and cardamom, which is on the pot in most households here everyday before and after working hours!

From sourcing...


We single source tea grades, both orthodox and crush-tear-curl (CTC), directly from farms in Tanzania. Our teas currently come from an organic tea plantation in Usambara Mountains in the lush green areas of northern Tanzania. The large tea farm employs over 150 farmers that pluck two leaves and a bud, and maintain the farm through the different seasons. These farmers work on the tea plantation as a daily source of income, which is key for their families' quality of life. Most of them are smallholder farmers that grow subsistence food crops on their own land for their families' consumption. Some also own small tea farms, which is planned to be included in an out-grower scheme. The tea plantation is Eco Cert organic certified, as well as Fair Trade certified

... to blending...


Our unique tea flavours are directly sourced from organic producers and processors across the country. Flavours range from fruits - citrus, pineapple, and berries - to spices - cinnamon, ginger, and star anise - and herbs - basil, peppermint, and lavender.

We are creating new blends to promote Tanzanian flavours and quality, and always looking for collaborators to come develop product ranges.

... and packaging


Our tea comes in bio-degradeable pyramid tea bags, which allow for the leaves and flavours to breathe as they unfurl in your cup.

Pyramid tea bags have never been packed in Tanzania before, and this is just another example of how we are transforming the tea standards here to compete internationally.

We have packaged our tea in modern, reusable tins that sustain the aromas, flavours, and longevity of the teas as they travel from Tanzania to our target markets.

The beauty of each of these product features is that, while pyramid tea bags and slip lid tins are new to Tanzania, by introducing these to the industry we are disrupting the status quo. This is the mantra of Kazi Yetu and will remain at our forefront.
