A NOTE FROM YOUR TEA SOMMELIER FOR YOU
This is a traditional and much-loved hot beverage in Russia since the late 19th century. In the glory days of the tsars, it was served from gleaming silver samovars, which today is a symbol of their hospitality.
Tea-drinking can be viewed as a way of relaxing, a conversation starter and important in resolving work matters and reconciliation. This caffeine-free botanica is loved not only for its warmth and taste but also for the feeling of well-being that it induces. The spices have a calming and comforting effect on body and mind.
It’s the evenings where I love to sip this warm-spiced blend. It is an opportunity to talk, share closeness and socialize. The tea can be drunk from special glass mugs encased in a metal holder, porcelain cups, or even tea saucers. Serving pastries adds to the tea-drinking experience. Toasts served with butter, home-baked cakes, and biscuits also pair well with this blend.
