Not everyone knows, but in Russia produced a unique tea. Our tea made from wild grass called Ivan tea.

Koporye tea (Ivan Chai, Russian tea) is a traditional Russian drink from 12 th century.
Before 1917 (the formation of the USSR) Russian tea was produced in large quantities and exported to many countries, such as England and China, but has been out of the market by cheaper Indian tea.
In the times of Soviet Union, this tea produces virtually no, but now he has found a second life.
Now Ivan tea produced in various parts of the country, 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 Russian 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 the Russian 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.

The Koporye 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.
