This organic loose-leaf black tea from Rwanda and Burundi is a special delight. Fair Trade Certified, this medium bodied African black tea comes from the Cyohoha River valley in the northern province of Rulindo. It is an excellent example of one of the few high-quality orthodox teas produced in Rwanda. The small twisted black leaves, grown at 6,500 ft above sea level, show hints of red and olive green in the wet leaf with an aroma that gives way to woodsy notes of warm cane sugar. The leaves brew a super bright, clear, and amber liquor with medium astringency and smooth notes of molasses, salt, and risen dough. The slight savory note on the end makes this loose-leaf tea truly unique.
