Beguiling black tea from the land of a thousand hills

Rwanda is still rather unknown as a tea-growing region. But the hilly country in East Africa with its altitudes of over 2,000 metres offers ideal conditions for tea cultivation. The best proof is our "Rwanda Karongi Kwitanga", an intense black tea where you can taste the dedication and craftsmanship of the Rwandan tea farmers in every cup.

Daniel Mack, Tea Taster at TeaGschwendner, recalls his first visit to Rwanda in autumn 2021 with a slight smile: "The colleagues at Karongi Tea Estate were initially sceptical when we suggested readjusting the machines to produce a light, flowery tea. But with a bit of convincing, we managed to get a great result in the end."  
Rwanda, like most African countries, prefers to produce very strong, intense black tea. Through the cooperation with TeaGschwendner, a whole new market is now emerging for Rwandan tea farmers. "We were very impressed by the commitment of our Rwandan colleagues to produce a really good product. We see great potential here and are pleased about the successful cooperation," says Daniel Mack. We were therefore happy to pay a correspondingly high price for the new premium tea Rwanda Karongi Kwitanga - the highest price ever paid in Rwanda for an orthodox tea.  

Reducing our carbon footprint with NABU reforestation project in Rwanda 

The local environment also benefits from the cooperation: to compensate our CO2 footprint, we support a reforestation project of the nature conservation organisation NABU International in Rwanda. Together with the Rwanda Wildlife Conservation Association and the Schlegel Foundation, a total of 20,000 native trees were planted in the Rugezi swamp area.
