Georgian Black Sea

#302  Teas from the country of Georgia are very rare, although tea has been grown and produced here since the mid-1700s. Cultivated close to the Black Sea, near Mtirala National Park, this second-flush green tea has been processed by Chinese methods. The dark green leaf yields a soft aroma with grassy notes and a pineapple-colored cup.

Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8 oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 80°C/176°F. Allow to brew 2–3 min.
