Rwanda Rukeri from Adagio Teas

Style: Black Tea – Region: Rwanda

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 12th, 2016

I got this as a free sample with my last order from Adagio. I've been quite impressed so far. For an inexpensive tea, it has a great complexity of flavor. Overall it has a slight astringency, but not too much. Very typical assam flavor profile with perhaps a bit more of a bite. Not strong astringency, but just a more d...

Bio Ruanda OP from Teehaus Bachfischer

Style: Black Tea – Region: Rwanda

97 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 24th, 2014

I'm surprised that this was an OP - impressive! I agree with Alex, definitely the best OP I've had, ridiculously complex for such a mainstream style.

I definitely noticed a nice roasted taste to the tea and an extremely unexpected subtle vegetable taste, reminiscent of some of my favorite oolongs. The vegetable ...

Purchased at Teehaus Bachfischer's storefront in Regensburg, Germany.

Wow, this tea is amazing! Definitely the best Orange Pekoe grade tea I've ever tried...and competes with the best of the best, things with those long labels like TGFOP and FTGFOP and the like.

Dry leaf, dark, wiry, and nondescript looking, has...

Superb Black Tea from The Excellent Tea Company

Style: Black Tea – Region: Rwanda

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 10th, 2014

Upon tasting this one, it quickly reminded me of a general black tea. Not bad, but not my preferred style. I pretty quickly decided to go ahead and add creamer, as I think that improves many of the less interesting black teas, and it certainly helped here.

I can't see the prices on the website, but others have menti...

Superb Black Tea from The Excellent Tea Company

Style: Black Tea – Region: Rwanda

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 26th, 2014

Super small tea particles in a cheapy-bag. Smells OK - a bit earthy - and definitely a black tea. Brewed up strong - but not inky. Not nearly as tannic as, say, Lipton. Drinkable but not a fave.

Superb Black Tea from The Excellent Tea Company

Style: Black Tea – Region: Rwanda

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 16th, 2012

I thought this tea was a good basic black, and it is pretty inexpensive too! I drank it straight without cream or sugar and didn't find it too strong (although I do like a good cup of strong black tea so my tastes may be different from some!). I'd be more apt to keep this tea around as a basic black over Lipton, and ...

This tea isn't particularly notable to me, but it's good. There's a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. I added cream and sugar.

Oct. 10th, 2012

The only tea I've ever tried from Rwanda: a humble teabag with finely-broken tea fannings.

Exceptionally strong and robust: this makes some Assam tea look weak! Good with milk and one of the few teas that I actually preferred this way. Brews a very dark blackish-brown cup, opaque, almost like black coffee. Yet le...
