DESCRIPTION Bag weight & ingredients How we select teas
Rasputin Tea has a strong and smokey flavor.

Our own blend of Keemun, Darjeeling and Lapsang Souchong. I chose this name as I heard about the discussion in Russia that they might make Rasputin a saint? Not what I learnt in history lessons at school.

Do you know the story of Rasputin? This tea is named after quite a character.

Rasputin, meaning "debauched one" in Russian, was a nickname given to GrigoryYefimovich Novykh.

This rascally peasant dabbled in religion and mysticism when it suited his interest, and ended up curing the hemophiliac son of the Russian Tsar and Tsarina, probably with the use of hypnotism.

A source of great scandal, the mystic Rasputin was nevertheless highly esteemed by the royal family for his services.

Smoky, dark, earthy, and mischievious on the pallet, this 3-tea loose leaf blend of lapsang souchong, darjeeling, and keemun is strong enough to have you folk dancing and singing, "Ra! Ra! Rasputin!"

5 of 5 Rasputin September 25, 2016

This tea is a custom blend by English Tealeaves and, in my opinion, it's a winner!  It is a blend of Keemun, Darjeeling, and Lapsang Souchong.  The combination produces a tea that is flavorful, aromatic, and robust.   It has a rich, strong quality that works equally well as a morning "kick-starter" or an afternoon "pick me up."
