Nice idea – lightly smoked and a light citrus tang – unlike other Kusmi teas which smell very nice and don’t always follow through with the taste this tastes exactly like it smells so if you like a gentle lapsangy hint of smoke and a gentle citrus hint this will deliver… I think it is very refreshing and makes for a nice drink when I get in from work and don’t have the time [or right mental attitude] for a more ‘serious’ tea

I haven’t tried this one yet. I think I’ll have to keep an eye out for it the next time I stock up on Kusmis…

What about the spices? Does it taste spicy?

Leopold Green

Hi – no not really spicy – imagine lapsang crossed with a mild earl grey (but in a good way)

Excellent Russian tea with natural, smokey undertones, reminiscent of wood-burning samovar preparation, full of flavor and body.

I love Russian tea! Along with their venerable Anastasia blend, Traktir is my favorite of the eight Kusmi blends that I have had the pleasure of drinking. It’s subtly smoky and sweet with mild notes of citrus and spice, evocative of caravan campfires and camels laden with luxuries from the East. It’s a tea that makes me long to own an antique samovar.
The day after I received this tea along with three free samples, I received another package in the mail from Kusmi with more free samples! Merci and cпасибо, Kusmi!

Flavors: Citrus, Smoke, Spices, Sweet

Tea of the morning. 1tsp 8oz 200F 3min, resteep 6 min. ( good resteep)
i couldnt get up today. i blame it on weather. we have very sudden temp fluctuations. yesterday was in upper 60’s today is in lower 40’s
Anyway, opened a tin. this tea seemed appropriate to get moving
And i really like it. it is smoky, but not harsh smoky. it blend beautifully with citrus and spicies. it is not chai kind tea. this tea is delicate and refined, but not short on flavor.
As i was drinking i thought it would be really nice to add tiny bit of maple syrup. i ran out of it. But found Nonna’s mini biscotti ;) perfect combo.
i even got my fancy Russian tea ware. Seemed appropriate for this kind of tea.

Boychik, beautiful pictures — I like how the warm tones of the table reflect in the light parts of the porcelain.

I thought I was in the mood for this tea, but I think I have to REALLY be in the mood for this tea. Not quite hitting the spot today. It is citrusy, smokey and earthy at the same time, which is a really nice and broad spectrum of flavors. I walked away from this cup and found it quite nice cold too when I cam back to it… but I’m still in the mood for something else today. But what?! I’m paralyzed by choice!
