This is one of those teas where I ask myself: “Where do I start?”

A fine Georgian black tea complex enough to be satisfying but never pretentious. It feels like an accessible yet refined ‘peoples’ tea. Fruity, floral, woody, malty. Delicate, lightly stewed fruits and grape verging on muscatel with a touch of butter, leather, salt. Rosewater and cherrywood base. The malt never dominates. Balanced astringency. Some spiciness in feel but not in taste. Nice fruity, tangy aftertaste. The body is damn near perfect for a stands-on-its-own black tea.

Granted I only had enough of this from a swap with Martin to have 3 days of western prep, it seems like a versatile tea. It has that comforting sweater weather feeling that made the past few mornings’ cloudy cold snap more bearable, but it’s also light and bright enough to feel refreshing on this sunnier and warmer spring morning. It sits so right with me. Thanks, Martin :)

You are welcome! I know I have to buy some more again. It is one of the finest black teas I had! As you said, good on its own.

That sounds wonderful! I have seen a Georgian tea for sale in Chapel Hill but never tried it. May need to have a look again.

Martin Bednář

ashmanra: I can get some, if you want to. Or O have something still in cupboard, but I don’t know how much. Feel free to write me an E-mail.

ashmanra

Thank you for the offer, Martin! I may take you up on that!

Ordered at Dobrá čajovna tearoom in Pardubice, as I am waiting for bus. Yep, another inventory check. This time groceries in Prague. I don’t feel great – last one was poorly made (my part) and I will got less money because of mistakes

Ordered this one, as I never had tea from Georgia. Received a teapot of volume I guess around 250-300 ml, a tea cup and thermos of hot water to add it to the pot.

Tea itself is quite sweet. But delighful sweetness. Bit like oolong sweetness. Roasted sweetness. I don’t know how to describe it better.

It tastes bit like jam. Malty jam. There are no citrus/lemon notes. Full of malt. But in no way drying.

Wonderful tea.

I had a Georgian tea from What-Cha and “malty jam” describes it perfectly. :)

Haha :)
I could not resist and bought 50 grams of it. Lots of to find all the secrets of this tea.
