Georgian Full-Leaf Black Tea Kviria

213 Kč

This very tasty tea full of tips is perfect for Gong Fu Cha preparation. The leaves are wiry, long, purposeful, and reminiscent of artistic black teas from Taiwan. After decanting, the hot leaf offers a sappy, fresh pine aroma at first, finishing with aromas of cooked jam and toasted nuts. The flavor is dense and very liquid, rolling, and lingering, like port wine, raisin, and caramel. The roasting is balanced, so the flavors coming through are the tea itself; avoiding any reliance on roasting for caramelization.

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 Kviria is a hero and a son of the gods who served as a mediator between Ghmerti and humanity.
