Kusmi Tea’s Prince Vladimir

I fell in love with this blend from the moment I opened this tea tin.  When I got my first whiff of Prince Vladimir, my immediate thought was that it smelled like soda…like Coca Cola to be exact.  I cut soda out of my drinking regimen about 9 months ago, so I never thought I would be encountering soda again in the form of tea!

Prince Vladimir has quickly become one of my favorites.  This is a moderately strong black tea to have for your morning boost, and exceptionally delicious with some Blackberry Mandarin Orange Jam mixed in, just like the Russians do!

Tasting Notes:

BREWING TIPS:  5 minutes @ 212 degrees F.

THE LEAF:  Black twisty tea leaves with flecks of citrus peel scattered throughout.

THE SCENT:   This tea smells like Coke!  If you love drinking soda like Coke or Pepsi you must try this tea blend!  Smells of sunny, sweet citrus (bergamot, lemon, and grapefruit) with a strong base of creamy vanilla.

THE STEEP:  A dark mahogany.  A strong yet well-rounded black tea that pairs well with sugar and milk or tea jam!

GET IT:  At the Kusmi website or through Amazon.
