To lestans: about tea

  • hi Livia,
    I was surprised to hear that tea from Russia is famous.
    We drank it only during Soviet Union times when there was deficiency of all products including Indian/Chinese tea.
    Never thought of Russian tea as of a good tea, so didnt expect it be exported.
    Well, maybe what was left within the country wasnt good while the exported part was of a better quality..
    After reading your comment I checked Internet to see what foreign sources write about it. In Wikipedia there is big article that, besides history, mentions that Sochi is the world's northernmost tea plantation region. interesting.
    Thank you for your comment.
