A collection of only the best Renegade teas of 2020. Some old favourites that we have practised and mastered over the three years, some that we just discovered this year. The set includes eight teas, altogether 375 g.
Renegade Collection 2020 includes:
3x50 G BLACK TEA
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!
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.
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.
2x50 G OOLONG TEA
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 ;)
Lazy Morning - Balancing between green and oolong tea, Lazy Morning is the greenest among our oolong teas. Also, our team's absolute favourite amongst oolong teas from 2019. The smell takes you to the fresh and sweet aromas of spring - a lot of lilacs and jasmine. The taste combines a bouquet of lilacs with a nice sweetness.
2x50 G GREEN TEA
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.
Renegade Life - This green tea is a true renegade. We took a bit different approach on this one by letting it wither overnight which resulted in quite an interesting green tea in our selection. It has a nutty, roasted aroma with hints of sweetness and umami in it. The taste is not vegetal as most of our green teas - instead, you can feel notes of chestnuts and peanuts accompanied by a roasted flavour.
1x25 G WHITE TEA
Cold Spring- A fresh and light white tea, to release its full character it demands a bit longer steeping time. The aroma is fresh and vegetal, with notes of citrus. You can easily use the same leaves for 3-4 brews to enjoy the delicate and sweet white tea with a very light astringency and sweet citrus aftertaste.
NB! Cold Spring is available only as a part of Renegade Collection :)
