Rwanda: Gisakura Tea Estate

The landscape of southern Rwanda is endless hills and valleys, all planted with tea. I didn’t know, but the Rwandan tea is considered one if the best in the world. A visit to a tea production factory showed how the stuff is dried, sorted, and packed. It’s amazing that only the top three leaves go into the tea, the rest is discarded. All tea leaf picking is manual, and the tea plantations are dotted with farmers toiling on tea plantations.
