Brahmin Tea

In my post A Wonderful Cup of Tea I wrote about a tea that a friend of mine discovered on a trip and brought back to me.

Steve Smith Teamaster, brahmin tea, loose tea, black teaOf course Brahmin is very close to my name so it was very interesting for me.

The tea is also a very nice tea and I have been enjoying it.

Early this month I received an e-mail from Smith Tea that the tea was being renamed to British Brunch.

The next business day I picked up the phone and called Smith Tea to see if there was still a chance to get some Brahmin tea or perhaps some of the packaging. I wanted to have one of the distinctive tea cartons.

Steve,

Enjoy the last of Brahmin!

Cheers,

Smith Teamaker

Steven Smith Teamaker, Brahmin TeaThe tea sachets are individually packaged for freshness.

Last week I put in an order with Smith Tea for some oolong and pu-erh teas. I am looking forward to trying the Portland Breakfast, Bai Hao Oolong and Shu Cha Pu-Erh teas.

Unfortunately you can no longer order Brahmin tea, but if you want to try this tea you can order some British Brunch.
