Our Review
Livingstonia is another orthodox (old-school) style tea, following in the footsteps of Kenya Milima. So, in contrast to most other African teas, Livingstonia is light and subtle. This tea comes from Tanzania.

Livingstonia GFOP

Africa is starting to produce better and better teas, so we are buying more and more. This one from Tanzania is named after the famous explorer: David Livingstone. The tea is a full leaf that is reminiscent of a high grown Ceylon: light and lively.

Takes me back to childhood in Kenya. A great afternoon tea, brisk and yet mild without the astringency that sometimes mars strong Kenyan tea. Review by AngelaJerusalem

Having lived in Kenya, this is one of those teas that takes me back to childhood, and all those excellent Highlands teas. A great afternoon tea, brisk and yet mild without the astringency that sometimes mars strong Kenyan tea. My second favourite (after Queen Catherine...) (Posted on 4/2/14)

Livingstonia Review by kirkesque
Average Review:
This is a surpringingly mellow tea. It has a body like a full Assam, but the delicacy of a mild Ceylon. Reminiscent of a rich Sikkim.

This is my first cup, but if it's this good gain, I'd give it a fifth star.

Colonialism never tasted so good. (Posted on 12/13/12)

Smooth and soft Review by Benjamin
Average Review:
This is a great tea, but I would have to recommend the Kenya Milima. The livingstonia is a lighter tea, If you prefer light teas go for this one. But if you like your teas dark like me, Kenya is a better option. (Posted on 12/2/12)
