Harmutty Special Summer Black Tea

description

This tea comes from Harmutty, a garden planted in 1870 by Major Gibb. It’s reputed for its orthodox second flush and this season’s offering does much to keep up its reputation. With large leaves, plenty of golden tips, this summer black tea is wonderfully malty.
