One of the perks of working in an international office is that interesting foodstuff is always turning up. Today, I wandered groggily into the breakroom and found this:
Rwanda Mountain Tea…from Rwanda. Just chillin’ in our D.C. office. Alrighty then. You know there’s an interesting story behind that! Anyway, between the silverback gorilla and the promise on the package, (“Best Teas in the World are probably made in Rwanda the Land of a 1000 Hills. The Best Teas in Rwanda are made by Rwanda Mountain Tea”), I could hardly resist.
Intrigued, I brewed a cup and settled down at my computer to browse the teamaker’s website. More descriptive gems: Rwanda Mountain Tea is “a delicate flavoury liquors from the misty mountains, producing an invigorating cup of breakfast tea. Teas from Nyabihu tea garden are carefully selected in producing Rwanda Gold luxury which is of great value and taste.”
Those delicate flavoury liquors really hit the spot, let me tell you. And they’re best served with milk and sugar.
