The 'Silverback Blend' gets its name from the majestic Silverback Gorillas found in the prehistoric Nyungwe forest in Rwanda. The Gisovu and Pfunda estates border this pristine forest which is also an hour's drive from the source of the ancient river Nile.
Tasting Notes: Rich, buttery, nutty & with hints of red currant.
Grade: Rwandan CTC (BP-1)
Gisovu Estate: Our teas are grown in three estates in the Western Province of Rwanda, also known as ‘the land of a thousand hills.’ Gisovu grows tea at elevations of 8100 feet, making them some of the highest grown teas in the world, while Pfunda grows its tea lower down in the wetlands. The diverse elevation, microclimatic conditions and the volcanic soils come together to bring you a unique cup of tea. This golden buttery brew is the long-lasting taste of Rwandan Highlands and some of the finest tea in Africa.
