Recently, @jackie posted a video about Sochi tea farmers in Krasnodar, Russia getting ready for the Olympics. It triggered a synapse or two. I’ve been on the hunt for teas from the Dagomys/Sochi/Krasnodar region (yes, all the same thing) for a LONG time. So, I was wondering if anyone new where an American tea geek could find some?
@jopj – Thanks for looking, but that’s not quite what I was talking about. Although, traditional Russian tea for a Samovar DOES include mint, what I was looking for was Russian-grown, not Russian blended. The latter usually is a low-altitude Ceylon. Russians dig that stuff for some reason.
@cazort – Every time I’ve gone into a Russian supply store locally, the result is the same…all imported tea from Sri Lanka. Or some kind of blend. Usually Russian Caravan…or crap with strawberry flavoring.
Sorry guys, im tottaly busy for the last wweks. Rapid business grows cause way too much works. Aha. Anyway, @lazyliteratus i did catch your e-mail.
M? Can you be more precise, what you want me to do? To find and send you that tea? Mmm.. not sure that i will able to find that, but i can ask my assistance to do that. And btw, where do you live? I mean, that address of shipping?
@imbapromotion – Oh, I wasn’t asking anyone to ship it to me. I was just wondering if you knew of any place in the U.S.A. that carries it…or at the very least a website? That’s all. Thanks for the reply.
