What is the traditional Russian tea - Fireweed tea?
Not everyone knows, but in Russia produced a unique tea. Our tea is made from wild grass called Fireweed.
Fireweed tea (or Koporye tea, or Russian tea, or Ivan Chai) is a traditional Russian drink from 12th century.
Before 1917 Russian tea was produced in large quantities and exported to many countries, such as England and China,
but in Soviet times has been superseded out of the market by cheaper Indian tea.
In Soviet times Fireweed tea was practically not produced, but now he has found a second life.
Nowadays Fireweed tea produced in various parts of Russia, mainly in the village of Koporye (near St. Petersburg),
which was born and production technology, as well as in various regions of Siberia and Altai.
Technology of production of Fireweed tea is very similar to the production technology of Chinese tea:
at first we collect leaves of young plants,
leaves little dried and heavily mauled to separate the juice to start process of natural fermentation.
Then the leaves are laid out on the mat, tightly wound into a large roll and left in the sun for one to two days for fermentation.
After that, the tea dries in an oven to obtain the finished product.
Ready tea has a pleasant aroma and fresh, slightly tart taste.
In contrast to Chinese tea Fireweed tea does not contain caffeine - tea has a calming effect,
it's good to drink before sleeping, it's not make an addiction like a regular tea.
Fireweed tea contains a lot of nutrients - vitamin A, which is very useful for vision,
tannins that slow the aging process, as well as a lot of vitamin C, so it's a good remedy for colds.
