From The Tea Table

Blend of tippy Yunnan and Assam teas with hand rolled China green tea pearls. Formulated in the late nineteenth century for the czars of Russia. Beautiful looking and delicious. A great afternoon tea. Use one teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes.

Pretty good, you can taste the Assam in this one but it is well balanced with the others for a very nice anytime cup of tea.

Is this a smoky floral Russian tea or more Russian Caravan?

Thomas Edward(Toad)

I’d have to say probly more of a smokey floral one because its not quite as bold as some of the Russian caravans I’ve had, It starts out nice and bold and towards the end it does have floral or even fruity hints, it’s quite nice tho.

Thomas Edward(Toad)

oh yeah also i haven’t had too much exp with the russians ive had just 2 russian caravans before and they were both bold enough for me to want to use a little milk in them but i think milk would ruin this one :)

Bonnie

You know that my Russian friends have tea with chocolates and the smoky florals we add cherry or strawberry jam (I wrote about this before) and slurp and eat the jam with a spoon like desert. The Grandkids like this!

Thomas Edward(Toad)

That sounds awesome, so you put the jam in the tea and drink it up? I’ve slurped tea thru a Twix bar before, delicious!

Bonnie

Yep! Well you put a couple tablespoons and keep taking bits with the spoon while you drink the tea…really good. Tradition is sour cherry jam. I always have some in the cupboard. I got my daughter hooked on this. TWIX?! REALLY?!

Specialteas.com used to carry this one. It’s nice to know you can get it at Tea Table. It is the only other place I’ve seen this blend. The pearls balance this blend nicely-give it a smoothness.

I used to get it from the specialteas.com before it got clobbered by teavana. It was absolutely amazing, very well balanced Yunnan, Assam with little hints of green pearls.
