Bohea tea, (pronounced “Boo-hee”), was by far the largest tea import during colonial times. Sometimes called Bohea Souchong or Lapsang Bohea, the blend originated in China with trade to the British and Dutch East India Companies. It was so popular that the word bohea became the slang term for tea. The blend varied wildly, consisting of broken orange pekoe, pekoe, and souchong dumped in a pile and then sifted, typically the scrap tea of lower quality leaves, but was considered high quality by the colonists. .

History:  Smoky, winey, warm.  Lighter smoky flavor than lapsang souchong..   

Notes:  This green tea is picked later in the season of larger leaves, is pan-fried and then curled and dried, yielding a buttery green tea infusion with a plum-like finish. 

Size/Weight:  20 Pillow Sachet Teabags sealed in matte black signature tea tin.  Teabag material is a non-GMO, all natural, plant based product that is fully biodegradable.
