To quote Hannibal from The A-Team: “I love it when a plan comes together.”

If any of you were paying attention a ways back, I was whining about wanting to try some Iranian-grown tea. Through mysteeeeerious methods, I was able to acquire some. And it lived up to the hurdles it took to acquire it. It’s smoky, malty, fruity, nutty, and just plane pleasant all around…if a bit on the light side.

I would definitely break a U.S. blockade for more.

This tea was only made available for TeaGeek.net members, and I was lucky enough to get to sample some. Most wouldn’t know, but Georgia (the country, not the state) used to have a thriving tea industry. Nowadays, tea is mainly produced by a collection of farmers that go for a traditional hand-made approach. The result shows in the batch. This is a very uniquely-prepared tea. Even when introduced to boiling water, the result is a nuanced, light-colored liquor with a smidge citrus, flowers, chestnuts, and malt. Can’t sing high enough praises for it.
