2-4mins. Medium Strength. Amber Colour.
This distinctively smoky tea is surprisingly spicy yet mild in strength.  Reminisce of past times with this historic cuppa.
From the master
Russians traditionally use a ‘samovar’ to brew their tea. A small amount of highly concentrated tea is prepared for each day and stored in a pot.  A small amount of tea is poured into each cup and topped up with boiling water from the samovar (like a kettle). The brewed in the morning is used all day, so it can be quite bitter and strong. Due to this jam or a lump of sugar is placed on the tongue prior to drinking the tea.
Whole leaf blend of Ceylon and Chinese teas. Tea leaf has been smoked during processing.
