TEAS WE MAKE
We produce organic single origin loose leaf tea - from white to black and everything in between. Our tea comes from fields that have been abandoned for the last 30 years, and therefore we can say with confidence that the tea bushes have been chemical-free for a long time and we continue with the organic ways of farming. We also have the official European Union organic certification.
Renegade teas are like wine - each season and each month are a little different. Even each batch is a little different, because our tea bushes are 60-70 years old seed-grown plants which means that it is nearly impossible to gather the same kind of leaves each time to make one unified product. Also, the tea for each batch has been harvested on a certain day from a certain plantation. We never blend or hide the origins of the tea and therefore even teas with the same recipe have some differences in taste dependant on which day it was made.
Our goal has never been to make 2-3 perfect recipes and to stay with it. We like to experiment and create different kinds of tastes. On our first full season, in 2019, we made 36 different teas! As we have got to know the soul of Georgian tea and as our skills have improved, we have narrowed it down to around 20 recipes. There are some staples that have won the hearts of our customers and ourselves, but we still try to provide something new every year :) Contrary to our initial promise to only produce tea from Camellia Sinensis, we even have a few herbal tea experiments from time to time.
We hope you want to join us on this journey to figure out what Georgian tea is capable of!
