I got this tea at the wrong time of the year. This is a fall tea.

This was definitely a surprise for me. It has a really powerful kick in both the smell and the taste, all the way down. It’s all kinds of complexity mixed into one tea and I don’t think I’ve tried a Samovar tea that has been this powerful before.

I haven’t experimented with too many herbal teas since I’m a bit more of a fan of straight-forward tea leaves, but this one is definitely unique. The colour of the brew was a surprise at first (a ruby or purple hue), but then you realize that it’s normal given the ingredients. It’s smooth going down, even if it can be a bit on the sour side, and the taste is not too similar to the smell which is interesting. It’s very soothing and I can tell it could make anyone feel warm on a cold winter night, which is why it’s a shame that I got my hands on it just as the weather is getting warmer.

I’m going to have to play around with this one more to see if shorter steep times or less tea might reduce the overpowering flavours, but this is one to try for sure. I’ll have to serve this to some friends and see what their opinions are.
