Gruziya Orange Pekoe Loose Leaf Black Tea Chinese Blend


£5.00




  • Gruziya is a blend of Chinese leaves modelled on the original renowned Orange Pekoe from Georgia.
  • The main growing area is to the western coast of the country around Kutaisi along the edge of the Black Sea.
  • Unfortunately, quality diminished considerably under Khrushchev in his push towards planned production figures, the resulting lower quality tea being given to Soviet soldiers.
  • This Gruziya OP produces a mild pleasant blend similar to a superior China black tea.
  • Interestingly the former Soviet Union is the world’s largest importer of tea; this pushes Great Britain into second place as we slowly change our habits into becoming a coffee-drinking nation.
  • Georgia is actually the world seventh largest producer of tea just below Turkey but above Japan.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
