A classic blend inspired by a 19th-century recipe. Since citrus fruit was considered a luxury in Russia at the time, orange rinds were kept so that they could be used to flavour tea. A base of black tea flavoured with seven citrus fruits: lemon, orange, grapefruit, citron, bitter orange, mandarin and bergamot.
In 19th-century Russia, citrus fruit was extremely expensive and exotic, and each fruit was sold in individual packaging. Only few could afford it, and it was a highly regarded gift.
