For Russian Earl Grey
At times served with mint, lemon or sweetened with fruit jam, unlike the British, Russians prefer their tea strong and sweet. They often place a sugar cube between their teeth while they sip to maximize the sweet factor. According to the former expert historian on Russian cuisine, William Pokhlyobkin, their tea drinking ritual calls for a prolonged period of relaxation and conversations, so nibbles by the samovar are a fundamental piece of the refined set-up, including traditional Lomonosov tea sets adorned with a cobalt blue net design and 22 karat gold. The standard savory food pairings with tea-time include a variety of cheeses and cured meats while those with a sweet-tooth typically snack on sushki, a bread-like slightly sweet ring-shaped cookie.
Traditionally, in most regions, no. A dollop of raspberry jam or a splash of cognac - yes!
Yes, Russian Earl Grey tea is delicious hot, and deliciously refreshing over ice, garnished with zest of lemon to enhance the citrus notes. For Mixology, infused in gin, the bergamot marries perfectly with the juniper notes.
Our Russian Earl Grey would pair perfectly with rich desserts such as cheesecake or a chocolate cake, or typical tea-time sweets such as cookies, biscuits, and pies, or even savory snacks such as crackers, bread, and cheese.
