Rwanda Rukeri is the perfect tea to close the season of Autumn. It so reminds me of it! It’s deep rich brown hue is quite grounding. It also looks like my favorite adjective to describe black teas: Amber-y.


The scent is quite air-y for a black tea; not as heavy of a scent as the look of the tea may give off. Rwanda Rukeri gives off musky, biscuit and caramel aromas.

Without 2 teaspoons of honey, Rwanda Rukeri by Adagio Teas was smooth, air-y and only slightly astringent. Caramel and currants skipped about together on my palette.

With 2 teaspoons of honey, Rwanda Rukeri took on an expectantly sweeter note; the caramel flavor attached itself to the sugars in the honey and the sip became heavier. I added a little almond milk to my steep (something that I always do with black tea steeps) but I noticed that this left me longing for whole milk instead.


With each sip, Rwanda Rukeri lead me to the commencement of my favorite season; Autumn. I couldn’t help but to ruminate over the wondrous beauty of the Fall from pine cones to cozy quilt-covered nights.

Rwanda Rukeri by Adagio Teas is a comforting brew; with 2 teaspoons of honey and a little (whole) milk, I am sure to get through the winter.

Adagio Teas is a super-cool tea company that not only provides delicious teas but also samples to each! I received these samples (below: White Peony, 0.3 oz | Honeybush Hazelnut, 0.8 oz | Rooibos Cinnamon Apple, 0.8 oz | White Cucumber, 0.3 oz) for only $2 or $3. The sample quantity yields more than enough steeps to determine if you'd like to buy a larger measure.
