Russian Tea Mix Review, Guest Rob_ert

The indredents were easy to find in the store. Blended mix stayed together well. I add the mix to hot water. My first sip was a pleasant suprise. The flavors and aeromatics were comforting. The tase is something one must try for yourself. I can only say that a cup of this tea, a fireplace, and some music of your choise: makes for a memorial moment of enjoyment.
