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.

@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.
