Speciality Black Tea.
During the Czar's time tea was the most important drink after vodka. In fact, even today the tradition continues as Russia and the CIS are major consumers of tea in world terms. Their tastes have changed over the years but light bright flavoursome teas are still in high demand in Russia. Often the tea is thrown into a pot and allowed to simmer and sleep all day. Evidence of this custom can be seen in the Russian Samovai - the ideal means of serving tea Russian style.
It's now time to throw away the teabags and try a great taste experience. You may not believe the difference that comes with using premium tea and brewing in the old fashioned way. Just as coffee has seen a revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast beans so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening around the country, and the world.
Hot Tea Brewing Method
Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 4 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.
Add milk and sugar to taste.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - when the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice.

Delicate and Warm
Ordered some to try with my latest order of tea and I'm glad I did. It's a lovely delicate tea but the little hint of lapsang gives it that lovely cosy feeling. I think I personally prefer the lapsang suchong as my 'cosy' tea but when I want something a little lighter I'd happily reach across to my russian caravan.
