Rukeri Estate is Rwanda's largest tea estate, and is located in the northern part of the country in the area of the Rukeri valley.
Rwanda Rukeri BP1 compares well to a full bodied Assam or Kenyan tea as it possesses hints of malt, molasses and wine together with a delicate astringency. A lovely tea, good for drinking with breakfast.
