Add to my notebook

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.
