Perfect all year long

Ice tea is the dinner beverage of choice in our home, and Lemon Black is so good it’s become part of our regular rotation. We especially love it with spicy food as the lemon tones provide a nice contrast.

Best iced tea I’ve found

I drink a lot of iced tea, and this is one of the very best I’ve tried. It gets rave reviews from my tea-loving friends, as well.

Tastes like lemon cleaner

Have you ever been doing housework with a lemon-scented cleaner and thought, "You know, this would be a tasty beverage!" Then this is the tea for you. It has very little black tea flavor on the initial sip, but has a potent linger of Pledge. As a reference, I'm a longtime iced tea drinker. While my ideal tea is Smith Bungalow (delicious iced, when available), I'll drink almost any tea augmented with a squeeze of lemon.

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.

Lemon Myrtle

Australian Botanical

Lemon Myrtle is commercially grown in Eastern Australia and the evergreen bush can be cultivated multiple times per year. It provides the unmistakable citrus notes in our Fez, Meadow, and Big Hibiscus teas.

Northern Rivers Region

The Northern Rivers Region is located in the far northeast of New South Wales in Australia, 500 km north of Sydney, Australia. Once on the decline, it has now been revitalized through niche crops (like Lemon Myrtle), hobby farming and tourism. We'd also like to think it was partly due to some of the fabulously named areas in the region, like the Gold Coast and Nightcap National Park. Camping anyone?

Nilgiri

Indian Black Tea

With little to no astringency, Nilgiri teas are aromatic, fruity, floral and gentle on the palate. These medium bodied teas make excellent iced teas since they don’t get bitter, don’t cloud, and are naturally smooth and sweet. With a golden yellow cup color, they can be slightly spicy with a crisp, clean, sometimes nutty finish.

Nilgiris

Nilgiri translates to "blue mountain". It is a range of mountains that are part of the larger Western Ghats and are located in the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala in Southern India. With over 24 peaks reaching higher than 2,000 meters, it made this area perfect for growing tea and other botanicals, along with providing the British in the Raj era respite during India's long hot summer. Tea is harvested between January-February and secondarily between August-September.
