Most loved and one of Africa’s finest teas.

This organic loose leaf black tea from Rwanda is a special delight and one of the best quality tea out of Africa. It is a clear favorite of our CommuniTea. Rich, malty, smooth and with a good balance of flavors this organic black tea is good straight up. A splash of milk won't hurt either. 

A super bright golden colored liquor with a distinctive, high quality flavor. This is a truly unique tea with a slight savory note, medium body and smooth hint of honey.

A beautiful estate of bright green, rolling hills, just beside a very well known lake in Africa, Lake Kivu. You have to try it. 

Rukeri Estate being Rwanda's largest tea estate is located in the northern part of the country in the Kirihara & Cyohoha valley areas. Here it has a natural tropical highland climate where the tea plants are grown at an altitude of 1700m-2000m. Processed at the Sorwathe tea factory which happens to be Rwanda's first private factory, where the leaves are rolled in traditional rollers using select and seasoned timber tables and battens.
SORWATHE has won many awards for its high quality teas, sustainability, and corporate social responsibility. Most Rwanda teas are grown on small farms that have united into a co-op which is why we partner.

"This is the best not-from-Assam assamica you’ll ever have." James A

"This is one of the loveliest tasting teas. As a matter of fact in my humble opinion it is one of the best" Aaron V


Enjoy tea from Rwanda, Land of a Thousand Hills.

Black Tea also contains antioxidants which may help to protect your body from the ravages of aging and environmental effects. Because they are allowed to ferment completely before drying, most black teas are especially rich in those polyphenols which have been shown to be effective against dementia in aging as well as AIDS related dementia. These compounds penetrate the blood brain barrier and have also been found to reduce blood cholesterol levels.
