Russian Country Loose Leaf Black Tea


This Chinese blend was an original prized export along the silk road, making its way thousands of miles with dedicated merchants and their pack animals. A plain, strong flavour collection made for, while robust, quite a charged black blend that Russian purveyors found to be the perfect smoke-rich balance for teatime sweets.

The Lapsang Souchong leaves help to fill out the strength at the core of this tea whose underlying flavours can be trying to detect beneath the Lapsang. Russian Country has citric notes, fruit notes, and even the peachy red hints of oolong according to the lesser leaves of the blend. Still, it is undeniably a smoky tea at the end of the day.  

Russian Country's nearly pipe-ready character provides the kind of hearty experience that speaks of survival, long journeys, and the final satisfying arrival of a parcel whose contents hail a sturdy Chinese tisanal.

Great Black Tea
We just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your reviews of Good Lift Tea. We love to hear from newbees to the world of loose leaf tea. Your comments are so refreshing!.
Smoky/Outdoor Flavor
You're right, Kate. Not everyone loves Russian Country right away. We have some customers that think it is the only tea for them. Your idea of adding a bit of half and half and a touch of sugar was excellent. We'll pass that concept on!
