A bright and fragrant single origin Earl Grey, grown close to the Virunga National Park. A winner at the Great Taste Awards and Rainforest Alliance Certified™.
Our Virunga Earl Grey is a scented pure origin tea, sourced from the finest tea gardens in Rwanda, found close to the country's border with the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Virunga National Park. In this region, the tea bushes grow slowly, at the high altitude and relatively low temperatures, developing greater flavour before they are individually picked.
All our leaves are only ever hand plucked. The leaf, bud and tender stem are carefully pinched together in a 'perfect pick' and subsequently blended with a traditional bergamot oil to give a distinctive flavour of citrus, with spicy floral notes.
Virunga Earl Grey is fully Rainforest Alliance Certified.
