Super tasty!

Was looking for a replacement for a summer lemon iced tea I swore by for years, and this one had all the yummy fruit flavors I was looking for.

Afternoon Tea Time

What can I say, really, really good and refreshing. I just love your Ice tea bags. So simple to make, no need for sugar if brewed properly! Sometimes I do add a 1/2 teaspoon of rock sugar if I brewed too long to take away any bitterness from overbrewing and it works! I even make pitchers to put in cooler for weekend camping trips. Love!

1st Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Dajeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Less oxidized compared to later flushes, first flushes are lighter in body and greenish in color, with notes muscatel grape, burnt sugar and sage.

Darjeeling

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, the Darjeeling region is home to 87 tea gardens. First flush begins in late March and lasts about 30 days, during which time each bush is plucked every seven days.

2nd Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Dajeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Teas produced during this period have fuller flavor than teas from the first flush, with notes of muscatel grape, wintergreen and sage.

Darjeeling

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, the Darjeeling region is home to 87 tea gardens. Second flush begins in early May and lasts for about 30 days, where the tea bushes are plucked every seven days.

Assam

Indian Black Tea

Assam tea is the biggest, brightest, richest and most astringent tea made. It is the backbone to breakfast style teas of nearly all brand and quality although it is also used in many blends for body and top notes. Assam is less floral and has more bread or biscuit-like flavor than other origins, and is often described as malty or coppery.

Assam Region

The Assam region is located in Northeast India, and borders Bhutan and Bangladesh. At near sea level, this region produces teas that are full flavored, rich, and chewy with distinct characteristics of caramel and malt. The best teas from this region are plucked and processed in June and July, a harvest also known as the 2nd Flush.

Ceylon Dimbula

Sri Lankan Black Tea

The Dimbula region is directly opposite the Uva region in Sri Lanka. Dimbulas are often called “Westerns” in the tea trade. They have a reddish amber color in the cup, with a medium to full body, slightly fruity flavor and mineral notes. Ceylon Dimbulas are often used in medium bodied blends, Earl Grey formulas and other flavored teas. The best Dimbula teas are produced from December to February.

Central Province

The Central Province, true to its name, is located in the heart of Sri Lanka. It is said that in its capital city of Kandy, the tooth of the Buddha resides in a temple, which alone makes this place worth visiting. Here at Smith, just as holy, are the many breathtaking high elevation tea gardens that make a significant contribution to the total output of high grade Sri Lankan teas, which we look to buy between the months of December to February.
