From Mahamosa Gourmet Teas, Spices & Herbs

This tea blend is derived from an old Russian recipe. As the name implies, it is perfect for serving from the traditional Russian teapot, the “samovar”. Russia is known for its love of teas which first arrived from China through Mongolia. Tea is the most popular non-alcoholic drink in Russia. The leaves are dark and smoky in appearance. This blend is highly aromatic and light bodied, with a hint of smokiness.

One of THE smoothest morning blends I have tried. Its not very smoky at all so don’t fear if you usually do not care for smokey teas. I swear I am getting a very light vanilla flavor here too and especially in the aroma! Nice tea! I will be doing a full review for SororiTea Sisters later today after I get some work done.

I normally do NOT like smokey teas. At all.

This is one that has a hint of smoke but doesn’t overwhelm the taste of the tea at all, and is perfect for this 40 degree fall morning. I don’t think I enjoy it enough to buy a lot of it, but I will enjoy what I have very much.

How have I not put up a review of this yet?

The key between c & e is broken on my computer, so there’s gonna be some creative phrasing up in here.

I’m having this tea partly to help me stay awake & partly as a comfort. My anxiety has been piquing a bit since I have a relatively minor situation that has been stressing me out because it sets off my guilt complex along with some other fears. I’m just trying to tell myself that it’s not necessary for me to react with stress & fear, even though that’s my normal habit.

ANYWHO. I really, really like this tea. It’s just so smooth. It’s ever so slightly astringent in the way that breakfast teas normally are, & the smokiness is artfully warm, not brash. Even just sniffing the aroma is a comfort. Nice aftertaste, too. It seems like a great first-thing-in-the-morning tea when it’s freezing & snowy out. Calmly assertive.

I hope your keyboard gets fixed soon. Gotta be tough finding ways around using the letter D.

I think this would make an awesome writing exercise. Pick a letter to be off limits and phrase everything around it? Ha ha! My daughter is going to enjoy this when school starts back…
