#301 Most Rwandan teas are grown on small farms that have united into a co-op; few produce orthodox teas, however, making this particular organic green tea a rarity. The acidic soil and high altitude in Rwanda are ideal for tea, and this single-origin tea from the Rukeri estate should be tried! Brewing up a shining lime color, this tea yields a vegetal aroma and a hardy flavor that lingers on your palate.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8 oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 80°C/176°F. Allow to brew 2–3 min.
