This black tea from Kenya was cultivated in the Rift Valley from plants of the Assamica variety (the same grown in the Nilgiris, in Southern India).
Rwanda Rukeri Organic
Produced at 1600 meters in the mountains of Rwanda by a cooperative of farmers, this black tea shows the classic breakfast signature style.
Grown at high altitude in a sunny yet humid environment, it represents high quality standards in a country otherwise dominated by industrial tea production.
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.
