A high quality black tea with a pungent smoky taste and aroma. A delightful change of pace not for the light hearted! A manly tea, yes, but some ladies like it too;)! 2 oz. yields 20 cups and may be steeped a 2nd time.
Often combined with bourbon for an invigorating beverage.
Legend says the Russians traveled in caravans to China to get their tea. Along the way home they would stop to camp. By the time they arrived home – all of the teas had a smoky campfire flavor. So the Russians developed a love of smoked teas.
