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 defined profile. It's hard to explain.

I was excited to see you had added and reviewed this tea (and thus learn that Adagio had begun selling it). I have only tried two teas from Rwanda, but one was truly exceptional, one of the best black teas I've ever sampled, and it was also quite inexpensive.<br /> <br /> I'd be curious to try this one. I am also excited to see tea from Rwanda more widely available on the market...it's not every tea-producing country that is able to produce orthodox teas of good quality.

I'd recommend it! I've had it a couple times now and have grown to really enjoy it. It's only a couple of dollars for a sample!
