From Moychay

Georgian White Tea Brick tea captures the warmth of the Georgian sun and delivers a sensory journey that nourishes both body and soul.

Hand picked and hand processed at our tea factory in Ozurgeti, Georgia in June 2023.

Visual appreciation

At first glance, the dry leaves of this tea exhibit a stunning display of layered thick leaves, reminiscent of nori green seaweed with beautiful brownish tones. As you inhale the aroma, notes of hay and dry leaves gently waft through the air, evoking a sense of nature’s tranquility.

Tea drinking experience

Upon infusion, the wet tea leaves release an enticing bouquet, reminiscent of the soft and delicate scent of birch. This adds a unique touch to the overall experience, transporting you to the heart of Georgia’s picturesque tea fields landscapes.

The tea liquor, with its yellowish hue and light amber tones, invites you to savor its creamy, soft, and thick texture. Discover the mineral notes mingling with the essence of boiled asparagus and a hint of chicory.

As you reach the end of your cup, the empty vessel exudes the comforting fragrance of wheat, reminding you of the agricultural heritage of Georgia. The finish on your palate leaves a subtle dryness, gently tantalizing your taste buds and inviting further exploration.

This tea is way more substantial than Moychay’s description implies and handles boiling water like it was born for it. Reminds me of pressed Fujian white teas so much more than I’d think. Really a treat, especially when the leaves are boiled after being exhausted gongfu.

Thanks for this awesome share, Martin!

Indeed it is lovely tea as much I have tried. And it was quite cheap for that amount of tea! Definitely interesting; pressed Georgian tea is something I never seen before nor after!

I have 3 different Georgian white teas and each one is different on their own.

I don’t want to call this one the most unique. But it is, definitely, unique. Pressed white teas are not common, moreover outside China!

So, I had to buy this. But I assume the main reason was… Georgia origin. Thick leaves, layered on each other. Easy to pry, but so hard to make exact weight. Leaves are wonderful.

Anyway, I tried 8.5 grams brewed gongfu (125 ml gaiwan) with 95°C water in the start of the session. Vendor suggests 8 g/100 ml; so a bit different ratio.

After rinse there were lovely birch aromas, slightly woody, slightly herbaceous and slightly woody. But bright wood scents, like birch is. I was surprised to see my agreement with the description by vendor.

I did several steeps, with various times. 20-60 seconds, first being shorter, naturally.

The flavours are… so interesting. Well, first of all, quite viscous. Secondly, the notes are creamy, slightly woody again, but that was definitely a good flavour! Meadow notes. Florals.

To be honest, even though I am writing this note right after I finished the session, I am not able to pick up the correct words. It is so nice, but hard to say how it is like.
The mouthfeel isn’t so long, but the unique notes repays it greatly.
