Product Description

VSRT (Very Special Rare Tea) Tea Bag Tea & Loose Leaf - BLACK

A gently smoked gourmet black tea produced in a traditional process that originates in the Qing Dynasty in China. The tea leaves are withered over pine or cypress wood fires producing a distinctive tarry note. This process originated in China's Fujian Province. The black strips of leaf produce a dark brown infusion and a liquor that is dark burgundy, reflecting its strength and body. This is a very traditional and distinctive tea with depth, body and a prominent wood smoke character.

Tasting Notes
Dark black rightly rolled large leaf with  aromas of smoky wood and resin of pine and eucalyptus. Juniper also present. The infused leaf is dark brown with olive green hints. The liquor is brown-orange with dark green shades. In smell and taste, this tea is smoky, minty, woody, earthy and has nuances of charcoal, mocha, cigar and pine. There is also ripe plum and a hint of small black berries. It is not a tannic tea but one of ambiance and the groomed personality of a gentleman.
