The midsummer tea consists of juvenile leaves and blossom clusters of fireweed. We collect the ingredients at the period of the solar maximum. This activity peak falls on the Midsummer Day. Since ages ago, St. John’s night has been celebrated in Russia the day prior to the Midsummer day.
Bonfires and torch-lit parades make the night special. According to the folk belief St. John’s night fires are magical. Vyatsky Midsummer Ivan-Tea is a union of the Sky Fire and the Earth Fire. The symbol of this tea is the Fire Flower. Fresh green juvenile leaves and blossom clusters define the color, the aroma and the taste of Midsummer tea.
