This tea is something I received from my boyfriend’s mom when we visited Alaska. I had a thermos of tea on the trip, but for various reasons I was unable to drink it. Right before we left Alaska, she bought me a 3oz bag of Samovar tea.
I understand why this tea is popular in Alaska. It is EVERYWHERE, right alongside the coffee. This tea feels strong, hearty, and warm, just what you want when, say, you’re visiting Alaska with your boyfriend in spring and a sudden -30 degree cold wave hits. Even though the ingredients might make you think this is fruity, I wouldn’t call it that. The two flavors that come to mind with this are sweet and spicy. It has a very delicate sweetness that is not at all overpowering, and is kept in check by the spicy, zesty flavors of the orange peel and cinnamon. Drinking this tea just makes me want to cuddle up in a blanket next to a fire place with snow falling outside.
I got a 3oz bag of this tea from my boyfriends father. He went on a business trip to Alaska and brought it back as a gift. Let me tell you, this tea is addictive! It’s sweet and spicy and citrusy. I drank the whole bag in a week. I ended up ordering some from their site, and while the shipping was more than I wanted to spend, every cup I make is worth it. I suggest ordering multiple bags if you plan to have it shipped. They can send up to 3 lose tea bags for the same amount of shipping.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Citrus, Clove
