From English Tea Store

During the Czar’s time tea was the most important drink after vodka in Russia. This tea has a long history, and the Lapsang Souchong in the blend gives the hint of mystery. The tea has a delicate flavor with a lively sprightly slightly toasty character. Perfect after a dinner party.

Tea from India ( Assam ), China and Sri Lanka

Azzrian sent me a bit of this – thanks so much!
It’s a nice smoky tea. It smells smokier than it tastes but I’m ok with that. It has a slightly sweet end sip. Not too bad cold either.

Reminiscent of smoky campfires as the caravans carrying tea travelled from China to Russia, this tea is a blend of a malty Assam and a smoky Lapsang Souchong. That smokiness seems to overwhelm. Still have teary spout from it. Details and some pretty cool photos: http://lyt-tea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/10/review-english-tea-stores-czar-nicolas.html
