When I was a little girl growing up in Russia, my grandpa used to take me to our garden out in the country, he had to work a lot in it, I tried to help as much as a child could, thinking I was helping the family maintain our treasure - our family garden. We had everything that you can only imagine growing there. All kinds of veggies, fruit, apples and of course lot of flowers. During his breaks my grandpa would start the fire and put a cast iron teapot over it. The teapot was used pretty often this way, so it had this smoky smell to it. And of course, the tea that was made in it, smelled exactly like this "Russian country" tea. Like that teapot hanging over the burning firewood. What memories! Excellent flavor! Smoky taste. Smells like Russian country exactly. I think, it would make a perfect Christmas gift, too. Thank you for this tea!
This is one of my favorite blends, I like strong tea with kind of a dry kick it not as good as Scottish morning (as strong as) but it will make a good evening choice. PS; if you had too much red wine and want to get yourself together this will do so.
When I first tasted this tea, I said to myself, 'this will be a wonderful tea to drink on a cold winter afternoon!' And so it was and is. But, then, one morning after I had rearranged the order of my tins of tea in the cabinet, my husband fixed a pot of tea for me. He reached to the usual place where I kept my breakfast tea and pulled out instead this Russian Country, unbeknownst to him. Well, wonderful!!! I found out through that unintentional mistake, that this tea is simply scrumptious in the morning any time of year as well as on a cold winter afternoon. Now, I enjoy it all the time, anytime I want a real treat. I love it!!
