Black tea hand picked and produced from wild tea trees from the mountains of Guria, Georgia. The area is an abandoned tea plantation which has become a forest of tea trees and become one with the beautiful surrounding nature. It is the original Chinese introduced tea bushes that has become wild and are now being harvested again. The tea is family-produced on a small scale and is part of the small-scale tea culture that is beginning to grow in Georgia with craft teas.
Georgia has traditionally since the 1800's had a production of teas exported to Russia and the Eastern Europe. Today, the production of tea resumed after an interruption in many parts of Georgia.
