   A Fujian province classic Congou, with smooth character, delicate hints of chocolate and subtle smokey nuances.

Ordinary black tea was often called "Bohea" in the 1700s, and while documents show that Bohea was the primary tea of the famous Boston Tea Party, it happened to be the cheapest of the teas thrown into Boston Harbor in December, 1773.

Authentic Bohea is in a class by itself, grown in the Bohea Hills (Wu-Yi Shan), and hand processed as in the days of Robert Fortune's visits to that area.
