A Russian blend with added extracts known as a Slavic specialty. This superb blend of black teas with lemon, lime, sweet orange, bitter orange, grapefruit, bergamot and mandarin, was created by Palais des Thés during its earliest years.
Since then, the 7-citrus cocktail has been added to different base teas.
Different from the tea that grows in Georgia, Russian blends have been enjoyed in Russia since the 17th century. Although they were originally blends of black Chinese teas, they became more diverse in the late 19th century when the Russian court was introduced to Indian teas, most notably Darjeeling. Since then, the term "Russian blends" has been adopted to refer to any blend of Darjeeling and Chinese black teas, with or without natural citrus extracts added.

While black teas are typically not my favorite, I really do enjoy a good, hot cup of this Russian tea every once in a while. This one is exceptionally good.

I find this tea to be overly citrusy and much prefer your Russian Imperial tea, which is the perfect ratio of citrus to black tea earthiness.

As an educator, all that one needs is a room of young minds to sculpt, a piece of good chalk (Hagoromo) and a cup of this marvelous citrus tea to keep you relaxed, but engaged. The citrus notes in this tea are very prevalent, but not overpowering, providing a great balance and an amazing finish. Great for mid to late mornings to keep you fresh throughout the day.

It makes for the best iced tea. I use 0.75/gallon, so this puck doesn’t last long. I wish they sold it by the pound.
