The quality of the Rwanda green tea leaves is among the best in the world, due to the excellent ecological conditions, the volcanic soil and the high-elevated grounds where it grows. Tea growing in Rwanda started in 1952 and today apart the eastern provinces, you can find many tea plantations in the country, with a higher concentration around the Lake Kivu. The total planted area is 12,862 hectares and after the coffee market plunged, tea is now number one export earner, contributing up to 34% of the total national exports.
