How strong is Rwanda OP Rukuri Organic?

Rwanda OP Rukuri Organic is a versatile black tea that can vary in strength depending on the method of preparation. This makes this tea suitable for different taste preferences, from mild to strong.

To achieve the perfect strength for your taste, the correct brewing instructions are important. For one cup of tea, use about 2 grams (one teaspoon) of Rwanda OP Rukuri Organic and heat the water to a temperature of 95-100 degrees Celsius. Then let the tea steep for 3 to 5 minutes. For a milder taste you can shorten the steeping time, while a longer steeping time results in a more potent tea.

In addition, it is good to know that the caffeine content of Rwanda OP Rukuri Organic is average compared to other black teas. This means that this tea can have an uplifting effect, but will not be overpowering. If you are sensitive to theine, it is recommended to keep the steeping time on the shorter side to obtain a milder tea.
