From Tealux

Located in Central Eastern Africa, Rwanda offers high elevation, tropical highland climate and rich volcanic soil to support its thriving tea gardens. Rwanda’s abundance of natural attractions, such as volcanic mountains, deep lakes and wildlife preserves, make it an alluring destination for tourists.

Our Rukeri Delight OP grade is comprised of pretty, young leaves with some tips. Dry leaf aroma is sweet with notes of biscuits and fruit. The liquor is full bodied, malty and lively with delicate astringency. Layered notes of currants, toasted bread and caramel in the finish make for a well-rounded cup.

I’ve been the first to review so many of Tealux’s teas! So sad. This one is a solid black tea from Tealux… a bit tough to describe. In the description, it mentions volcanic land, and I guess I would describe this as what some Fujian teas taste like, but I haven’t actually had a black tea that was Fujian, I don’t think… only oolongs. There are a ton of flavor qualities I don’t think black teas usually have. It’s a bit of everything: the first thing was that it reminded me of BBQ. Usually only roasted yerba mates remind me of BBQ. I guess it has a spicy flavor with a HINT of smoke. There is that “volcanic” flavor, that is a bit charcoaly, and also a bit dry in the mouth. Hints of maltiness. It’s dark and light flavored at the same time… like a Darjeeling, but not. Did anything I said make any sense? The second steep is biscuit, and has a fuller flavor. Really, just a nice black tea that has a different flavor than other teas. A nice change!

Tea Sipper, I’m equally surprised to see how very few are reviewing on Tealux. I like many things from that company so far. Very good quality-price ratio, huge variety and free shipping available. What’s there not to like ? :-)

I have made out an order several times. I get to the point where I have to create an account to buy anything and I’m done. I wish they had an option to check out as a guest for my first order. I don’t necessarily need all my info sitting out there with a company that I may only do business with once. :( I may get over that eventually – they have all kinds of things I want to try!!!

TheTeaFairy — exactly.

Nicole — I’ve only received e-mails about sales around the holidays from Tealux. I don’t mind them, even if they are tempting. But you must mean they actually have all of your information forever. I just figure other websites have all my info anyway…

I’m not sure I’ve ever had a tea from Rwanda, so when I saw this in the tea box I knew I had to try it. Just one of the reasons I love ttbs!

The tea has a medium body and is fairly biscuity. There’s a sweet note at the end of the sip. It could be fruit, but I’m really just getting sweet. There’s also another note… at first I wanted to say wet granite, but after reading the description of the tea I’m going to say volcanic rock… so pumice? There is a wee bit of astringency, but it works well here.

This was nice! I can’t say I feel the need to buy some, but it’s an interesting tea and one I’d have again if I were offered a cup.

This was sent to me by cookielady in the Christmas card swap. It is a dry, strong tea. I didn’t get any notes that stood out but it took cream very well. It would probably be quite good with sugar or honey as well.

This is a sample from TeaSipper. Thank you!

This cup is hitting the spot this morning, although I am having a really hard time putting my finger on the flavors I am tasting. This cup verges on the spaghetti taste for me. It is slightly astringent, but in a good way. There are hints of bread and then the slight tomato flavor. It is nice this morning! Not something I need again, but I am glad I got to try it.
