Description

Emeric Harney had the pleasure of traveling to Rukeri Estate a few years ago, beginning our relationship with this estate. A beautiful estate of bright green, rolling hills, just beside a very well known lake in Africa, Lake Kivu. Please try one of Africa’s finest teas.

Ingredients: Black tea.

 Details: In memoriam to a great tea man, Joe Werthiem, we offer this tea from his estate in Rwanda. Joe established it many years ago, and it has become a desired source of tea in many a blend. This particular tea is made in the orthodox way (rather than the strong pellets from the CTC way), so it is a more mellow and sophisticated offering of Rukeri. 
 Dry Leaves: Medium twisted orthodox black leaves.
 Liquor: Dark Brown.
 Aroma: Sweet toasty flavors like roasted onions.
 Flavors: Sweet toasty flavors like roasted onions.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Full-bodied
 Brewing Time: 5 minutes
 Brewing Temp: 208º
