drank Russian Blend by Samovar
37 tasting notes

Well this is my third tea that I received in the Diggnation “Hippie Glenn” Samovar set, and I must say I think I saved the best for last. I’ve been a huge fan of Russian/Lapsang blends for years now but I think this one takes the prize. This is the first lapsang style blend that doesn’t “punch me in the face” when I drink it. This blend is creamy, smooth, and remarkably sweet for such a smokey tea. The balance of flavors is impeccable. Great with scones and jam in the morning.

It’s really neat to see your progression on this. And I just realized I didn’t log this one. Another tea to add to the tea log pile! Cheers for you finding an LS blend to your liking!

Thanks Takgoti! Ya, the journey through the tea set has been great. Each steep gets better and better. I just ordered some Ryokucha, so I’m definitely looking forward to brewing some up soon. Love the stuff from Samovar. Great quality so far.
