Tanzania is a country on the east coast of Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean. Tanzania is one of the most important tea-producing countries in Africa, and also borders Kenya and Malawi, two other major African tea-growing countries. In 2008, Tanzania was the world's 14th largest tea producer, producing about 0.73% of global production, and placing it 4th among African countries.[1] Most of Tanzania's tea is exported in bulk and sold for a low price; one major tea company in Tanzania that has distinguished itself for the quality of its product is Chai Bora.

Tanzania has a warm, tropical climate, with seasonal patterns of precipitation. Some of the country has a single wet and dry season, whereas other regions have two distinct rainy seasons.
