Sophisticated Russian-style black tea blend of seven teas

Renowned tea merchant Helwig Hooss created this highly sophisticated Russian-style black tea blend of seven varieties half-century ago and it became an all-time customer favourite. His nephew, our founder Jens, was inspired to recreate the original recipe for you to enjoy today.

When I started P & T, Uncle Helwig shared with me his well-guarded pure-tea blend recipes, and now we are starting with this wonderfully balanced and highly nuanced blend of 7 (seven!) teas. This particular blend is based on an old Russian tea recipe which a customer asked my Uncle to blend for him one day. Helwig refined it considerably over the years until he came up with exactly the right balance of these seven teas from China, India and Sri Lanka. What we love about this tea, beside its beautifully complex flavour profile, is the fact that it really highlights “The Art of Blending” - and that like in fine wine, a really good Cuvée can achieve something utterly unique, which any one cultivar on its own cannot.

addictive black tea!

After drinking this tea a few times, I find it very hard to go back to tea of other brands... I find especially the black teas by P & T superb and addictive, this particular tea being a primary example of that for me. Love this!

A great semi smoky black tea

comforting and warm for fall. It's quite malty but not as intense as a Lapsang Souchang.

Great tea

This tea style has brought memories from the past, as this is the first gourmet tea style I have ever tasted (from other brand than P&T). And P&T made those memories true again, and with a style! Great blend, balanced between fruity, sweet notes and stronger ones. Love it!
