Black Ceylon-Style Tea
This loose leaf tea has been awarded first place for the best Rwandan tea at the North American Tea Conference. The tea has excellent flavor, a bright orange color and unique character, with sweet, round and nutty notes. It refreshes the palate served alone and has hints of a high-grown Ceylon. The tea is hand-picked and grown at an elevation between 1,700-2,000 meters. It is processed in traditional tea rollers using seasoned timber tables and battens. 

Recommended serving size 2.5 grams. Steep @ 180 degrees for 4 minutes. 1 tin contains 20+ servings.
For an incredible cold steep tea, use 4 grams per serving. Steep in the fridge for 4-5 hours.
