Rwanda OP Rukeri Organic Tea

Product Code: 000019
  • £5.25
One of the finest loose leaf black teas coming out of Rwanda.

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.

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

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