Gunpowder tea 'n lapsang souchong combine to make a strong breakfast tea that has a more complex flavor than black tea alone, but be still a pick up fer early mornings. Like all smokey teas, do not over brew, that strong kick in thar seat tea can turn bitter if it sits forever in hot water.
This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 195° for 2 minutes.
I first started combinin' green tea 'n black tea in winter of 1990 whilst I was livin' in Asheville, North Carolina. I remember wakin' up in thar mornin' to me tea, gettin' me New York Times, 'n readin' with interest 'bout these people in Yugoslavia who were throwin' off communism 'n defyin' yonder old communist guard to do their worst. Knowin' ye world as well as I do, I said predicted widely to all of me me hearties that this wee country of Slovenia would last 'bout 'ten days' once te' power of Yugoslavia came down on it.
Less than a year later, on 25 June 1991, these Slovenians declared independence, 'n I marveled at their bravery faced with what I thought was their certain extinction. Havin' never been to their country, I was as neutral an observer of their independence as could be found.
In fact, me ten day prediction was pretty accurate, thar wrong way. yonder Yugoslavian army attacked but it was undecided how to fight ye war, 'n ye Slovenians proved to be willin' to resist to ye last measure. By ye 3rd of July, it was all over, 'n a peace accord was signed in ye next week.
Ever since then I have called me mixture tea Slovenian tea. I have never visited Slovenian, 'n never will, but their struggle was worth namin' a tea aft them.
