With inflated prices and high duties, thanks to the East India Company's monopoly on the trade, smuggling was a more profitable, albeit dangerous, avenue to bring affordable tea from China to merchants in Europe.
Black tea leaves, a slight air of smoky green tea leaves, hints of tobacco, and local wood (represented by Himalayan cedarwood) from the packing crates. Also available in Eau de Parfum spray.
