Rwanda OP Rukeri Organic

Product Code: 000019
  • £4.25
One of the finest loose leaf black teas coming out of Rwanda.

A relatively new African black tea. Great care is taken during withering to avoid breaking the naturally long leaves. Spice and citrus notes blend in the taste and aroma.

This tea is handled with extreme care during withering to keep the leaves whole to ensure highest quality. The resultant leaf is mid-brown, long and quite tight.

The aroma is fresh and slightly spicy which is also conveyed in the liquor which has citrus overtones.

Rwanda has the ideal conditions for growing tea - hot temperatures combined with high humidity and two rainy seasons enabling year-round plucking.

The Rukeri estate was founded almost 50 years ago producing small quantities of orthodox teas.
