Thanks to its high elevation & tropical climate, Rwanda has the ideal conditions for growing tea. This one, however, is even more special thanks to the particular savoir-faire of the team at the Rukeri Estate - Africa's highest tea garden.

I normally like quite a strong cup of tea but this has won me over. It has a lovely taste and I am enjoying its subtlety.
It the first time was trying a Rwandan tea. :) It is pretty good I would say it is more a tea for daily consumption as it is not in my view a premium tea and it is 'ot either a basic one. The taste is a bit earthy I would say but it is still soft.I t's a traditional black tea, good in the afternoon.

We work hard to find, taste and select exceptional teas, first and foremost looking for quality and flavour in the cup. We focus on single-origin, whole leaf teas where the character is a direct reflection of the area in which it is grown, as well as the craft involved in growing, plucking and processing the leaves.
There are an infinite number of teas being produced every year, so our role is to find and bring you some of the best. Our care in curating the range, as well as the quality of the product itself, has earned us both our customers’ trust and multiple Great Taste awards.
Not only does the tea need to taste good, it is also important to us that we know exactly where each tea comes from and who is responsible for harvesting and crafting the leaves we buy.
We work exclusively with trusted farms, co-operatives, partners and suppliers who share our values. We source from 13 growing regions around the world, always paying well above fair-trade prices.
Sourcing and curating a collection of delicious, award-winning teas from around the world is only the beginning.
We then provide the knowledge and tools you need to help you bring out the best possible flavour in every cup when brewing at home.
As a team of passionate brewers, blenders, tasters, curators and, perhaps most importantly, drinkers of delicious tea, we get excited about helping you make a delicious cup of tea every time.
We are committed to reducing any environmental impact our packaging has before and after use. There is no perfect solution so we focus on continuous improvement, always looking to keep it as minimal and natural as possible without compromising on the quality of our product.
We are proud to say that our entire retail range is now both fully compostable and certified 100% plastic-free.
