Georgia Black Tea (Formerly USSR) Wild OP Grusinia loose leaf tea
Teas from Georgia (in Russian: Grusinia) boast a long tradition and were very hard to find and very rare. We are thus overjoyed to be able to revive this tradition. Tea has been cultivated and produced in Georgia ever since the middle of the 18th Century. Chinese tea shrubs form the basis of Georgian tea cultivation. This quality that we are offering comes from wild growing shrubs. The leaf structure is matte black, long and wiry and presents some tips, and develops a sweet, bready scent in the infusion with a bronze cup colour emanating a full bodied, spicy, fruity brew.
Steep 4-5 minutes at 203-212 degrees F using 1 level teaspoon of tea for each 6 oz serving.
