      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?

      Yes, it’s for the ol’ blog.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Ok you’ve send me back to my collection of teas. I was given a gift of tea which is marked “Russian Tea” although it looks more commercial than “true tea” heres the scoop: Russian Tea 

      Samovar Blend with Mint
      A fruity-flavored blend of fireweed blossoms, black currant & raspberry leaves and mint.
      Made in Nikolaevsk, Alaska by Nina Fefelov 
      “All proceeds are used to purchase food for children in Russia.”

      If nothing else they may have some suggestions
      hope this helps

      @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.

      @Xavier – Got some of that. Thanks, though.

      @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.
