A mix of lapsang souchong (to recreate the smokey taste and smells of open cooking areas), almond (a nod to the ever present candied almonds that were present at most meetings with local elders and officials) and peppermint (to balance the other two and capture the essence of the 'lightness' of the Afghan tea I frequently drank) teas.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3 minutes.
This tea is inspired by my year in Afghanistan. Rather than attempted to recreate the teas I drank there I preferred to develop a blend that captured the feel of the place and this blend does a pretty good job, if I say so myself.
