Black tea Rioni Estate

This year we have 5 different black teas that were harvested from your personal tea garden in Rioni Community Garden, so here is a hint what to expect from your this year's Renegade tea delivery :) 

Berry Breeze - A very lightly oxidized spring black tea. It has a soft and smooth taste where you can feel hints of berries - red currant, raspberries and hibiscus. A fresh and fruity black tea, no sharp edges.

Renegade Black - Light, smooth and at times quite sweet. This fruity and a little bit sweet black tea is a truly nice companion at any time of the day!

Georgian Breakfast - A great companion to start the day with! This black tea's captivating smell is toasty, smoky, a bit spicy. You can feel some roasted rye bread, tobacco. The taste is full-bodied, toasty and you can also feel the sweetness of dried plums. If you have been looking for a stronger black tea in our selection, then this is the one! 

Evening Lilac - Evening Lilac has one of the most distinct tastes among our black teas and as the name hints, it will take you to the world of flowers. Both the smell and taste has a full bouquet of lilacs and jasmine. 

Smooth Jazz- A perfect example of a typical Georgian black tea - sweet, fruity and smooth. The smell is a bit malty but sweet. It has notes of wet wood and very ripe fruits in it. The flavour is well-bodied, fruity and sweet - you can feel hints of orange peels and honey, also a right amount of tannins. 

*Smooth Jazz is still in production in Georgia. If you would like to receive this tea, your package will be sent out in the beginning of November. 

Please note, that the exact types of teas we will select for you randomly. If you know that you would for sure like to get Berry Breeze for example, then let us know in the comments in the cart view and we'll take your wish into account.

Here’s a little guide to our black tea taste profiles:

All of the harvests are done by hand- people from nearby villages plucking only the finest leaves. All of the teas are produced in our own small factory by either Tomas or Hannes, experimenting with different recipes, trying our best to bring out the greatest tastes of Georgian tea.

    Green tea Rioni Estate

    This year we have 2 different green teas that were harvested from your personal tea garden in Rioni Community Garden, so here is a hint what to expect from your this year's Renegade tea delivery :) 

    Tulip Garden The spring version of the popular Sunset Garden. After several tries to bring out the essence of Georgian green tea, this tea is the best result so far. It has a grassy, vegetal taste with hints of flowers. The most balanced green tea in our selection.

    Green Velvet - One of the mildest version of our green teas. It’s perfect for all the tea lovers who tend to forget the leaves to steep for too long. The taste is fresh, smooth and vegetal. You can sense hints of mango in its aftertaste. Almost as if someone had secretly added a dash of sugar to your cup. The tea has a fresh yellowish colour and a sweet aroma. 

    Please note, that the exact types of teas we will select for you randomly. If you know that you would for sure like to get Green Velvet for example, then let us know in the comments in the cart view and we'll take your wish into account.

      Oolong tea Rioni Estate

      Oolong tea Rioni Estate

      This year we have 3 different oolong teas that were harvested from your personal tea garden in Rioni Community Garden, so here is a hint what to expect from your this year's Renegade tea delivery :) 

      Prodigy Mesame - The smell is fresh and floral, you can feel the sweet aroma of butter biscuits and sweet summer flowers. The taste is well-balanced but floral at the same time. Not too much to the green nor to the black side, just the right balance. Mesame means third in Georgian languages and represents the third try for Prodigy. We think that the third is here to stay ;)

      Winter Remedy - Winter Remedy is the only tea for what we can say that we couldn't really replicate the recipe from 2019. Although, being one of the favourites for our team, as hard as we tried, it didn't really come out the way it was supposed to :) But the 2020 version is still a good tea! The aroma has a tart smell of ripe berries, you can feel plum or rhubarb cake in it. The taste is sweet, fruity and silky, tannins take it to the edge of black teas. 

      Miss Ohh Long*This oolong has the perfect balance between the silky nature of black tea and the freshness of green tea with some floral hints in it. The slight astringent aftertaste is just the attitude of Miss Ohh Long that she shows from time to time.

      *Miss Ohh Long is still in production in Georgia. If you would like to receive this tea, your package will be sent out in the beginning of November.

      Please note, that the exact types of teas we will select for you randomly. If you know that you would for sure like to get Prodigy Mesame for example, then let us know in the comments in the cart view and we'll take your wish into account.

        This year we have 1 white tea that was harvested from your personal tea garden in Rioni Community Garden, so here is a hint what to expect from your this year's Renegade tea delivery :) 

        Imereti Summer- It is withered under the sun, feels like summer days in Imereti, Georgia - sweet, smooth and full of light summer aromas. The delicate sweet flavours and its silky feeling are captivating. Since the teas have been withered under the sun, then the appearance and also flavours are a little different for each batch. 

        *Imereti Summer is still in production in Georgia. If you would like to receive this tea, your package will be sent out in the beginning of November.
