More info

Rukeri is an orthodox tea produced in the north west of Rwanda, the tiny quality-tea growing Central African country nestling between Uganda, Tanzania and Congo.

Rukeri is the garden mark for orthodox black tea manufactured by  Cyohoha-Rukeri Tea Estate, Africa’s only tea estate with a USA owner.  The high yielding estate is set out in a remote valley on rich swamp land soil; it has a good reputation for CTC tea but has only been making orthodox tea for the last three years.

It has excellent flavour and character, sweet, round and nutty – enough briskness to refresh the palate without the need for milk to quell astringency. It has definite hints of a high grown Ceylon.  No surprise then, that the factory manager is Sri Lankan – it certainly shows in the quality.
