A most unusual black tea from a most unexpected tea region, which possesses a sweet raisin taste.
Tea growing started in Azerbaijan in 1931 by decree of the Soviet Union as they sought to establish a second tea growing region. All tea production is based in the Lankaran region due its sub-tropical climate and mountainous conditions. The collapse of the Soviet Union and subsequent war with Armenia impacted heavily upon the industry and resulted in a sharp fall in production.
