A tea bag received with postcard from postcrossing community once again.
It’s always nice when they include a sample of a tea or, rather and often, just a tea bag. This is new one for my collection of outer tea wrappings and… sounded so good I decided to brew it instantly.
Rosehip and hibiscus, combined with black tea is indeed Russian traditional blending I think. I never saw it elsewhere.
But the tea, even though it was only a tea bag, was pretty good. It was fruity/punchy taste of rosehip and hibiscus wasn’t too tart at all. Sadly, those flavours overpowered “long leaf” black tea base. Maybe it was, afterall, mellowing the “fruit” flavours, but not a single note from the base is in the taste. If it was more present, I would be happier. But honestly, not sure about Russian market tastes…
EDIT: I see Cameron B. found a better pic than I. Thanks for changing it!
