Details

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 at first very well received.

The Tsar and the people of his court were accustomed to drinking warm fruit and herbal beverages, and found that the new beverage was 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 flavor. Various blends were experimented with using combinations of ginger, salt, orange peel, rice, onions, and various herbs and spices. The most popular of these blends however were the more heavily sweetened versions based on citrus fruit.

As years wore on, tea consumed in this fashion spread throughout Russia, and Samavors, a unique and traditional Russian tea pot became ubiquitous throughout the continent. To this day, Russians are among the highest per capita tea drinkers in the world and enjoy the drink at all times of the day. In keeping with Russian tradition this blend adds sweet orange peel and a mellowing herb - all natural lemongrass, in addition to the tart character of bergamot, (the citrus fruit used to flavor all Earl Greys). You will find this tea to be at once sweet, and exceptionally soothing. Add a splash of milk to really bring out the citrus overtones of this blend - or, add some sugar and sweeten it up Russian style! Either way, this is one tea you'll want to savor all day long.

Love this twistReview by Caitlin

I am a huge fan of earl grey, but I didn't mind this shift from the fundamentals. The lemongrass is lovely, but if you are not precise with your steeping (4 minutes and 45 seconds for me) the city's notes can be a bit overpowering. (Posted on 10/16/2017)

Citrus NotesReview by Noell

If you like citrus notes with your earl grey you will appreciate this tea. I am not a citrus in my tea or water person, so I didn't enjoy it as much as my co-worker does she raved how great it was and finished my sample off immediately. I will say for a tea with citrus it is very good, just not my cup of tea no fault to the tea leaves or blend its just my tastes. Try it an enjoy!! (Posted on 2/17/2017)

I really enjoy Earl Grey, and with the addition of orange flavor and a little vanilla, it just takes it to a whole new level! (Posted on 5/11/2016)
OrangeYouGladReview by FullFig
The addition of orange peal to the traditional Earl Grey tea puts another brick in the "FlavaWall." This tea has depth. I brew a tea latte with a concentrated brew adding frothed whole milk & two teaspoons of raw sugar. It gets you thinking about having another before you've sipped the last drops of the first. Without a doubt my favorite Earl Grey version to date. I'm going to order more! (Posted on 3/7/2016)
My Favorite TeaReview by rebecca
This tea is smooth and mellow. It is my favorite tea when I want to relax. It tastes outstanding with local honey and a bit of cream. I have friends who drink it black and friends who drink it with honey and they all love it. (Posted on 4/30/2014)
Favorite TeaReview by Mike
This is my go to tea. It is wonderfully flavorful. The Earl Gray flavor stands out very nicely with a slight citrus undertone. I look forward to each cup!! (Posted on 9/17/2013)
