This tea didn’t strike me as anything special the first time I tried it.
Allow me to exercise my right to completely change my mind. I had it again this morning, a sip or two to get myself ready for a hearty breakfast, and it was delicious. Really pleasant citrus notes blending very well with the flavor of the black tea. The flavoring is just right; I can taste the sweetness of the citrus at the very end of my swallow. Very bright and mellow tea, though not by any means light.
I had set my heart on getting a large tin of the Prince Vladimir blend from Kusmi since I was so impressed with that and the St. Petersburg blend, but on this second try the Troika may be just as deserving of a second buy.
