The 'Silverback Blend' gets its name from the majestic Silverback Gorillas found in the prehistoric Nyungwe forest in Rwanda. The Gisovu Estate borders this pristine forest which is close proximity to the source of the ancient river Nile.

Tasting Notes: Rich, buttery, nutty & with hints of red currant.

Strength: Moderate

Grade: Rwandan

Gisovu Estate: 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.

Brewing Instructions : Place a teaspoon of leaves in a cup and pour boiling hot water over it. Infuse for 3-4 mins for a clear, bright golden and medium body liquor. To savour without milk , add some honey and/or slice of lemon. Infuse upto 5 mins for a stronger liquor with milk/creamer and sugar as per preference. Brew in the traditional African style by steeping up to 7 mins and adding lots of milk & sugar.
