From Good Tea

Very special wild tea that grows in Georgian woods. Rumour has it that the tea garden was started hundreds years ago by vassals of Prince Miha and then left to its fate. As time passed, tea trees disappeared among taller trees which have grown much faster. Tea trees gained a lot of strength not only thanks to a rich forest soil but also thanks to the fact that there was no harvest for some hundreds of years. They grow naturally shaded by surrounding trees having a perfect amount of sunshine throughout the day to produce well balanced tea leaves. The tender tea leaves provide a long series of brews offering fresh, light, herbal-floral bouquet with nuances of raspberry leaf, lime, linseed and mint. The aroma is airy and tender, floral.

Georgian Prince Miha Eristavi first encountered tea during his travels across China in the 1830s. Impressed with its taste he decided that he would take some seeds back to Georgia. At the time, exporting tea seeds from China was forbidden so the prince hid some seeds in a length of bamboo and smuggled it out of the country. On his return to Georgia he used the seeds to create the first tea plantations. The very first Georgian tea was produced in 1947.

In Georgian mythology Kamar is the daughter of the god of the sky. She is a symbol of divine fire. Her beautiful appearance caused Amiran to abduct her from heaven.

March 2022 Sipdown Challenge — A tea that makes you happy

Like a meadow. Wildflowers, straw and flax notes are backed up by a muted dried spicy-leafy-herbacous tone and the taste of a light clover honey. The tea sips astringent and becomes sweet and viscous as it moves which allows the honey to swell, but the astringency breaks through especially under the tongue.

Thank you Martin for the sample! It was my first Georgian white tea. A good tea to brace my senses and get me more in line with this daylight savings time shift. Now to make the most of my 3-day weekend :)

Flavors: Astringent, Drying, Flowers, Herbs, Honey, Mint, Spicy, Straw, Sweet, Viscous

You are welcome. I think that Georgian white tea is indeed a rarity, moreover if wild grown! I am happy that you liked it.

Another finally opened pouch.
But I am sitting here and trying to write a tasting note and… nada. I feel so off-track recently when it comes to tea. The leaves are looking so beatuful, the pictures are true to reality. Wild grown, organic, white tea from Georgia is something unique I just had to order, even it is one of the most expensive teas I have in my collection.

I did two western steeps. First one was rather long, so it gets quite a thick texture, but filled with nice peachy note and a bit of other stonefruits. Then some minerality appears. It was quite an unique experience. I even used maybe too much leaf, about 4-5 grams (my accurate scale ran out of batteries).

Second steep, of same leaves, is very different though and honestly probably even better. It was a bit shorter steep, around only 3 minutes (maybe even that was too much) and a bit colder water maybe as well. It get some herbal note I think, but not offensive in any way, maybe honeyish a bit as well. It is more floral as well. Are those meadow flowers? Proabably so.

This sounds good. I wonder if gongfuing these leaves could make them last longer.
