Traditional Recipe | Sweet touch but not smoky! | This Tea was composed as a blend of Black China Keemun and Assam Tippy Broken Orange Pekoe Teas. Superior Golden Tip quality.
The Assam leaf creates a strong note, while the Keemun adds a slight sweetish flavor to this blend that is famous in Russia since the 17th Century. A good choice as a regular, great tasting Iced Tea.
Use your own blending skills by adding small amounts of Lapsang Souchong # 1012.
As an already Smoky Blend choose our # 1064 BLACK TEA BLEND “SCOTTISH BREAKFAST TEA GFOP”.
To sweeten your beverage consider our Rock Candy Crystals or popular Oregon Tea Honeys # 88005.
