3Mountains sources premium tea direct from cooperative farmer groups in high elevation Rwanda. The four types of tea we offer you come from the same plant and have varying levels of caffeine and antioxidants according to age of leaves, processing and brewing techniques.
Rwandan Silver Needle Tea
The delicate needles are sourced from the youngest part of the camellia sinensis plant. The buds are hand-picked, gently steamed and air-dried. High in antioxidants and lighter in caffeine. Crisp and cooling, with hints of jasmine. Recommended steep time 2-3 minutes. 160-175 degrees.

Rwandan White Tip Tea
White tea is the lightest in flavor and color of all four types of tea from the camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are band-picked only in the morning when the buds are open, then lightly oxidized and carefully sun-dried. This process allows for the highest count of antioxidants with the least amount of machine processing. It offers an earthy and fresh flavor, with floral notes. Low caffeine. Recommended steep time 2 minutes. 160-175 degrees.
Rwandan Green Tea
This award-winning tea is hand-harvested and steamed with no oxidation, creating a fresh, smooth tea with mild astringency and powerful antioxidants. Hints of peach and a unique earthy flavor. Recommended steep time 2 minutes. 170-180 degrees.
Rwandan Black Orthodox Tea
Bright orange in color, this energizing tea has a unique character of Rwandan terroir. Sweet, round, nutty notes are balanced by refreshing acidity of high elevation grown Ceylon. Notes of rich molasses can be detected, naturally sweetening the tea. Recommended steep time 3 minutes. 170-180 degrees.
All of our tea is excellent served iced too and makes for a wonderful ingredient and infusion for mixed drinks, baking and sauces.
