A hand-picked and entirely hand-produced black tea from Georgia. The tea is grown and produced by a family in a very small scale. The tea consists of whole leaves. Cultivation takes place in the village Tjakvi in Adjara.
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. In some cases orthodox teas of high quality are produced. The tea bushes grown in Georgia originated in China.
