    Most tea recipes are credited to China or India. A few variations like iced tea is credited to America which happened around World War 1. However, there’s one variety of tea that you must try – Russian Tea. Most teas with fruits and herbs are served as iced teas. They can be concentrated or prepared freshly. However, Russian tea is served hot. There’s a good reason for it. The recipe is not complicated either. If you love your health and tea and also want to try a variety of flavors, try not to choose the bottled teas or artificially flavored tea. Make it at home and enjoy its benefits.

    Tea in Russia was introduced in 1638 when a Mongolian ruler donated 65 - 70 kg of tea to Tsar Michael I.

    In the Soviet period, tea-drinking was extremely popular in the daily life of office workers (female secretaries, laboratory assistants, etc.). Tea brands of the time were nicknamed "the brooms" (Georgian) and "the tea with an elephant" (Indian). Tea was an immutable element of kitchen life among the intellectuals in 1960s-'70s.
