I’ll tell anyone who listens about the pleasures of Rwandan teas. The ones I have tried have a distinct flavor that I find irresistible. Pleasant notes of tobacco meld into a very balanced black. I bought my first Rukeri tea on a whim from Upton last year and it is something that I have kept in stock ever since.
Upton states you can brew it strong or light and I have to admit to brewing it for a whole 5 minutes pretty much every time so that is what my thoughts are based on. This tea also makes a very nice iced tea. Highly recommend this Rwandan tea.
