From Georgian Tea 1847

Rare and special. Why? Hand-picked once a year from wild bushes growing in the high forests of western Georgia. 30-50 years ago, there were plantations on the site of these forests. During this time, nature has created a unique ecosystem: the soil is enriched with mountain water, and tea bushes are naturally shaded by tall trees. Such conditions give the tea a unique taste and chemical composition that is not found in other teas.

Place of Origin

Imereti Region, Georgia

Altitude

700-800 m

Tasting notes

Silky, fresh vegetal notes with mineral finish and finely sweet flavour

First tea from the Georgian tea group buy.

Dark green strands resembling Huangshan Mao Feng. Dry leaf is fairly odorless until dropped in a heated vessel where it emits a faint green bean aroma.

This one tastes more like sheng puerh than a green tea to me. Golden yellow liquor with hay and straw flavors and a light fruitiness. Has that earthy-woodsy sheng type flavor going on. Ordinarily not a flavor profile I’m fond of – I prefer fresh tasting green tea – but here it’s fairly enjoyable because the earthiness is soft and doesn’t have the bitterness and smokey flavor often found in puerh.

Hey guys! Don’t be afraid to write notes of those teas! Even bad ones.

I am very surprised that noone wrote a single line and a few of you got them already. Hopefully this note can change it a bit.

Because I have tried it today, two or three pinches (I haven’t weighted it) and used quite hot water (it was boiling, but resting on the stove-top for a few minutes). So, sadly I don’t know the temperature either. Prepared western in large basket-strainer.

Anyway, after a short steeping time — it was 2 minutes at maximum, I got bright green liquid which had aroma of sweet grass. Buffalo grass? I don’t know names of grasses.

The brew is silky smooth with light mineral/again sweet grass notes. Aftertaste is very sweet and very enjoyable. As I had 50 grams, I have a plenty to try this more, with many different steeping parameters, methods etc.

TeaEarleGreyHot Hey Martin! I have been occasionally sipping those Georgian teas, but I wanted to give them a good chance to impress me before writing a review that could have a great impact on a small collective. So far, they are decent teas and I’m glad to have them. But I just haven’t had the time to put into sipping for a formal review. I will get to it… Don’t worry! And thanks again.
TeaEarleGreyHot For what it’s worth, I have spent about 50 times more on Yunnan tea and haven’t reviewed but a small fraction of them either!

I’m trying to finish 10 or so open bags of other teas before exploring the Georgian catalog. Past experience says the Georgian tea profiles pair best with our autumn weather, which won’t be happening here until November. In reality, I’ll probably start trying them in October!

Soon… this is the first one I opened a couple days ago too! I’ve been drinking so many flavoured teas lately and need to switch gears before writing a note :)

It wasn’t intended as a reproach. It just suprised me :) I am glad to hear they are good.

I’m steeping this tea right now. This was the first of the Georgian tea I tried. Followed the website instructions but am not getting much flavor from it. I think I’ll use higher water temperature next time like you did.

It usually takes me several sessions to dial in the right steeping parameters. I try to wait until I can brew a tea correctly before reviewing. Otherwise it feels like an injustice to the tea :-D
