#873 Teas from the country of Georgia are very rare, although Chinese tea shrubs have been cultivated in the region since the mid-1700s. Therefore, we are thrilled to bring you this black tea, plucked from wild-growing shrubs. The matte black, long and wiry leaves, with some tips, yield a bronze cup; a sweet, bready aroma; and a rewarding full-bodied, spicy, fruity brew.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8 oz cup of filtered boiling water. Allow to brew 3–5 min.
