From TeaGschwendner

A blend of Ceylon, Chinese and Indian teas with the mild notes of smoke and spice favored by the nomads of the Russian Steppes. Its flexibility in the cup makes it ideally suited to service from the icon of Western tea culture, the Samovar.

I went in to the tea shop with no real plan. Just that I wanted a plain black tea. No clicks and no whistles. I was suggested the Russian Samovar Black Tea. This tea has a very traditional black tea scent and a nice dark coloration once steeped. The taste is a very straight up black tea as I hoped for. Though there is just a little something extra I keep noticing with each swallow. What it is I can’t figure out….and I am in no way complaining. It is just a nice extra bite with each sip. I will have to make a batch tomorrow and see if I can figure it out then.

Solid every day black tea blend, which brings together Chinese and Indian black teas in a mellow, exotic and lightly smokey cup. This is a tea that can be over-extracted purposely to intensify the flavor and can be an ideal tea to drink with the traditional addition of milk. This is perfect for when you are having someone over for tea and don’t feel like wasting your single garden 1st and 2nd flush SFTGFOP1 teas!!

This is a very straightforward black tea. Nothing to write home about. However, it smells wonderful before steeping - very rich and fruity (like raspberries). After the steep, the scent is much milder. It reminds me a lot of sweet oranges, which is nice. This fruitiness subtly carries over into the undertones and aftertaste of this tea…and I do mean subtly. Overall, this tea is ok as a light compliment to breakfast. I wouldn’t reach for it any other time though.

So I figured I would try a Russian blend, and this one’s alright. Maybe it’s just not my thing. It smells great before steeping, but maybe my process is messing it up somehow. Overall, it’s average-ish, and alright for a cold day. Nothing special, though..
