Gorilla Hermit Rwanda Black Tea

The curled leaves are light and long and can be compared to Ceylon.

Gorilla Black Tea

This pure black tea comes from the volcanic mountains near the ancient forests of Rwanda where indigenous wild Mountain Gorilla families live.

It is a unique physical environment and is the last mountain rainforest left on earth.

This area delivers a complex hearty and spicy black tea and we chose an ethically produced OP1, who’s colour and shape reminds us of the Mountain Gorilla and our need to conserve these wild environments. Gorillas are also known for their love of consuming only the finest vegetation and are very picky.

We want to support the Rwandan tea growing community maintain their pristine forest environment and support their efforts to maintain their stunning wildlife.
