Russian Sickle Black Tea

Description

Description

The land of the hammer and the sickle isn’t often associated with tea drinking. That could soon change now that this distinctly Russian tea has become available. Our Russian Sickle Tea is traditionally brewed in Russian samovars, which are heated metal containers used to boil water. These are frequently used in Russia in replacement of kettles and tea pots, with tea brewed this way the country’s most popular drink after its much beloved vodka.

Brewing tea with samovars is also common in other parts of Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In fact, some samovars even feature a ring shaped attachment on the top for supporting and heating a tea pot filled with concentrated tea.

Our Russian Sickle Tea is surprisingly gentle in taste but as an especially strong aroma that’s released the moment the lid on the samovar is removed.

Even if you don’t have a Russian samovar in the cupboard, you’ll find our Russian Sickle Tea is just as refreshing when brewed in a conventional tea pot. In this instance, a mere three minutes is needed up to a maximum of five minutes to brew the tea leaves so they release their potent aroma and contrastingly smooth taste.
