Origin: Rutsiro gardens, Rwanda.
Grade: Broken Orange Pekoe 1.
Form: Loose Tea.
Grown in the Nile-Congo crest in the west of Rwanda, at an elevation of around 2,400m, this gives the tea its brighter colour and improved flavour and freshness.
Orange Pekoe is the highest grading of leaf in the West and South Asia, so you can be sure a cup will be something to look forward to. The ‘broken’ part of the name refers to the tea being slightly crushed during collection and processing. Tea purists might seek unbroken leaves, but we think the compromise gives better value without sacrificing taste.
Green Teas are high in antioxidants with a fresher taste.
