Biscuity Keemun, malty Assam mellowed by white Silver Needle

Why we say its great

The Tsar's liked it, probably because of the expensive silver Needle addition. Silver Needle allows a longer steep time

A blend of choice for fans of Russian teas. Fine China & Keemun black teas with a touch of real Silver Needle White rounds out its edges. The Keemun adds fruity undertones. When Russian teas fell from popularity about 7 years ago and our supply dried up we decided to strike out on our own and create our own blends based on our knowledge of the Russian blends. This Russian Tsars blend has taken off very well and is often sold by the kilo. It seems too many tea shops give up on the slower selling blends and discontinue them. We thank them for that because our Russian blends have taken off.
