From Samova

The classical base of Darjeeling and Ceylon gives ISTANBUL NIGHTS a distinct oriental feeling. With a harem of fine herbs including cinnamon, cloves, ginger, coriander and cardamom.The freshness of this tea will take you from Istanbul´s trendiest night clubs, dancing into dawn on the banks of the Bosporus.

This black tea blend is at its best when served with a sprig of fresh mint. We suggest three heaped teaspoons per samova tea pot. Tarkan-fans let it steep four minutes.

Ingredients:
Black tea (Darjeeling and Ceylon), hibiscus, crisped mint, cinnamon, aniseed, cloves, ginger, coriander, pepper, cardamom, caraway, aroma

Another Samova teabag I picked up on a recent trip – this sounded like a nice blend of black and herbal flavors, with mint predominating but ginger, coriander and others also in the mix.

The suggested steeping time is four minutes, but we’re there now and the liquor is looking a bit timid, so we’ll leave it in for another minute.

That’s better. It’s medium greenish-brown now and has a really nice scent to it, mixing mint with a floral/fruity note. On first sip I can taste the hibiscus that also plays a role, so I’ll put in a little sugar to take the edge off the tartness. Mmm, even better now – though I can’t really taste any of the black tea that’s in there, I do feel like it gives the drink a more robust character than it would have with just the herbs. There are some nice flavors in there, the mint pairing nicely with the cardamom. Not a bad one at all.
