Rwanda Rukeri Organic

Here is a rarity produced at 1600m by a cooperative of farmers in a mountainous, sunny and humid environment, ideal for the cultivation of tea. Its strong, full-bodied liquor boasts malt and vegetal notes (tobacco, sweet pepper) typical of the assamica cultivars. Fine nuances of dried fruit, cocoa and spices (camphor) add to its breakfast character. 

Kenya Kangaita

This tea was cultivated in the Rift Valley from plants of the Assamica variety (the same grown in the Nilgiris, in Southern India). It was transformed using the Orthodox Method, which is odd for a region that is accustomed to producing more industrial type teas (CTC). The liquor is spicy (pepper, bay leaf), slightly camphorous, fruity, lightly burnt (toasted bread), and malty. The aromatics are well balanced and the tannins well structured. This tea is sure to please fans of black teas that are strong but not too harsh.

Infusion Beaker by CS

After the pouring the water onto the leaves, the transparency of the glass will display the pleasant spectacle of their waltz, and the gradual darkening of the liquor. The infusion beaker is a perfect accessory for fans of tea in free infusion, which lends itself particularly well to large-leaf and herbal teas.
