From Mint Brook Meadow Teas

Russian Spiced Tea is our most popular tea! What Tolstoy novel would be complete without a little tea?

In 1689 Russia and China signed a treaty making peace and defining their borders. Soon tea began to arrive in European Russia by camel caravan, traveling 11,000 miles from China. Usually taking 16 weeks, the larger caravans ranged from 200 to 300 camels. Outpaced by the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, with the completion of the Trans-Siberian Railroad in 1900, the camel caravans virtually disappeared overnight. Tea survived the revolutions of 1917, and is still a popular drink in Russia today.

Order our Russian Spice Tea, a fine blend of China Black tea, orange peels, red clover blossoms, and cinnamon, grab your novel, and enjoy a peaceful day.

I just read about Russian tea and Russian Tea Culture in “The Story of Tea” by Mary & Robert J. Heiss. This tea tastes nothing like the descriptions I read. However, it is a mellow citrus-black tea with a hint of cinnamon. Don’t use milk.

I originally gave this a ratingof 41.

My best friend is Russian, I’ve gotta get her some of this! She loves spiced tea/chai.

Although this tea is nice, it doesn’t match the descriptions I’ve read about Russian tea, so I don’t know how your Russian friend would like it.
