This Grand Cru is produced on the outskirts of Moshi, Tanzania. It is produced in the volcanic soil of Mount Kilimanjaro. It is unique as it is oxidised in hollowed-out papaya fruit, and dried next to the fruit. This gives this aromatic oolong a distinctive character.

An unconventional tea with powerful fruity and honeyed fragrances. It reveals a powdered texture which gives the tasting notes a long finish.
