Generally refers to any tea with a liquor that is fresh and lively, as opposed to a tea that is stale or flat-tasting. Can also refer to a tea with relatively high astringency. This term was first made popular by Sir Thomas Lipton in the 1890′s while advertising his garden-direct Ceylon teas. While all of our organic, loose leaf teas at www.ArborTeas.com are of the utmost freshness, and thus exhibit the aforementioned briskness, we encourage you to try our Greenwood Estate Ceylon Black Tea for a truly brisk tea experience!
