To me, Troïka is a mild black tea. The head note on dry leaf is clearly bergamot but orange is really present, but behind.
This is the same after steeping : a mild Earl Grey perfumed with orange.
I am very sorry but I wasn’t able to pick up mandarin.
It is a subtle tea, very smooth : the kind of tea a lot of people should appreciate and I am not an exception, I appreciate it.
But I clearly prefer Anastasia which is stronger and much original to be.
Anyway, thanks for the travel in Troïka, magnificent steppe …
