I feel that I should know, but I don't :( .

I am familiar with some blends called Russian, because for a while I was searching for a black tea blend resembling Russian Railroad tea (as it was called in the old country) and bought a number of them. I never heard of this one. I Googled it, it is not very common and comes in tea bags, but you probably know this already. Since it is bags, I probably won't buy it myself.

Have you tried it?

Someone gave me a bag of it a long time ago but I don't remember anything about it, which maybe telling, but I found a box of it last night while shopping for the 3-Crown peppermint.

I'll just take the plunge and pick some up next week, I'll let you know how it turns out.

Beecrofter was telling me about a place in Connecticut that is a nursery with formal gardens and teashop... included in their inventory are teas by a Parisian tea company called Kousmichoff which seems to specialize in Russian teas. One of their teas is called Troika - I don't know if this could be related to what you are asking for.

Here's the webpage

Quite an old post but this tea in bags and really leftover crumbles in the most un-inspiring package and a VERY low price is pretty good. I have a hard time finding it as a few stores discontinued it. Best the way I grew up: sugar and lemon. It is a nice colour and 1 bag makes a whole can nicely.
