Russian Lemon Black Tea

Published: Tuesday 30 October, 2018

Russian lemon black tea is traditionally made using a samovar, but in the absence of one, you can use your normal teapot as well. This tea is usually made stronger than other recipes, which is why when adding the tea leaves you add one teaspoon for each cup, and ‘one for the pot’. To dilute the bitter flavour, fill only half the tea cup with the brew and then top it with water.
