We feel very fortunate to have a limited amount of this special 2015 black tea from Nagobilevi, a Georgian village set up in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains near the Black Sea. The tea from this high altitude plantation has a distinctive aroma-notes of apple, citrus, honey and rose with a higher tannin but lower caffeine content. Because of Georgia's geography and meterology, the teas in this region contain microzones, which add more depth to the character of the tea. The Georgian Village Tea made by families is quite sweet and steeps nicely for at least two infusions, at boiling temperature, 212 degrees Fahrenheit, for 4-6 minutes.
Loose leaf tea comes packaged in a foil-lined, opaque pouch that has a resealable zip-lock to maintain freshness.

I'm really not a connoisseur, but this tea has changed me. It is lush and aromatic without any wiffy additions. It's just very good tea with a distinct personality. It's not an Asian tea -- it's Georgian and has a completely different accent. This is a tea you would want in your samovar. It's not moody or broody or strident but it's not so delicate that you have to go searching for it's distinction. It's balanced and rich and smells of grass and wine and tea, deep tea. Promise me you'll always try to stock this tea.
