Rwandan Rukeri


Packaging Type

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.

Mike's Tea Ratings

Briskness: 4
Body: 4
Aroma: 2
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 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

Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: Full-bodied
Flavors: Sweet toasty flavors like roasted onions
