Nicely roasted Georgian black tea from our co-managed teagarden. We made this tea from a few spring and summer items, thus we got this special Zhao Zhou blend. Thanks to the flowery notes of the spring teas and the deep tones of the summer teas, finally we an amazing blend with outstanding flavor complexity. Because of the shorter oxidization and the careful roasting, there are a lot of fruity, and flowery notes in it besides the chocolate and cocoa flavors. Due to the hand-picking and the organic production, it has a really interesting world of taste. We offer this truly happy tea for morning drinks or friendly conversations.
The hundred years old Georgian tea tradition came back to life again when Hannes and his friends established the Renegade Tea Estate. Almost hundred years old plantations, organic production, handpicking, and continuous experimenting between the amazing Georgian mountains. We’d like to introduce this tea from our co-managed garden. Truly happy teas are made in Georgia, which always makes us smile.
