Tea has been consumed in Russia for centuries. The drink was first introduced to the country during the Tsarist era in 1618. The Chinese ambassador to Moscow at the time presented Tsar Michael Fedorovich with several chests of tea as a gift. Although the Tsar accepted the gift with legendary Russian grace the tea was not very well received at first. Why? The Tsar and the people of his court were accustomed to drinking warm fruit and herbal beverages and found the new beverage to be slightly bitter. According to Russian folklore it was one of Tsar Michael's chefs who struck upon the idea of adding fruit and spice to the tea in order to enhance its flavour. Various blends were experimented with including combinations of ginger, salt, orange, peel, rice, onions and various herbs and spices. As it turned out the most popular of these were the heavily sweetened blends that included citrus fruit.

Russian Earl Grey

Very nice, subtley spicy earl grey which I find more invigorating than "normal" earl grey.

Russian earl grey tea

This was the first tea that I tried from the Earl Grey selection pack. It took me a little while to get used to it, but now I really like, especially for an afternoon tea break. It's tangy and fruity, definitely a lively tea, and quite refreshing.
