From Pluff Tea Company

Bohea (pronounced “Boo-Hee”) is a distinctive black tea blend with a light smoky flavor. It was so popular in colonial times that bohea became the common word for tea. It was imported in larger quantities than all other teas combined, and it was the majority of tea destroyed during tea tax protests in revolutionary America.

My daughter and son-in-law came to celebrate Mother’s Day early with me today. My gift was this tea plus one other from Colonial Williamsburg, and a sugar cone! Our local German grocery sells them as Zucker Huts, which is really fun to say.

My eldest daughter doesn’t really care for black tea, but she loves green tea, white tea, and matcha, as well as some puerh tea. She likes coffee, so I thought this one might appeal to her. I liked it – it is a mild black tea with light smoke flavor though heavier smoke aroma. There is a clear, light, sweetness to the base which seems very like – if not the same as – the base for their Lapsang. Her husband does like smoky tea at all, but she liked it and had two cups with me. This was good, and was definitely a lighter Bohea than the other two I have tried.

I tried both teas, but I don’t know if I can bring myself to unwrap that lovely sugar cone in the blue paper!

I love sugar cones! I used to work at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg when I was a teenager. I owe a great deal of my love of history to hanging out in Colonial Williamsburg on my days off.

Nice lightly smoky tea. I got this from Colonial Williamsburg’s online store, which sold teas in 1/4 lb amounts only ($10.95). I really enjoyed this cup, which had a delicious woodsmoke scent and a medium body, with a clear sweetness like the taste of real spring water. I drank this neat, without milk or sugar.
