Rosehip tea, just like the fruit, has anticancer and immune-boosting properties. It is rich in antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress. The tea is a great source of vitamin C and can help ease a cold or even stave it off if you drink it regularly during the colder months.
Recently we got a very touching message from a customer, who came to us to buy some black bread for her old mother. The mother suddenly said that Russian bread was delicious after reading about our online shop in a local newspaper. It turned out Russian soldiers shared their bread with her on their way to the Korean War a long time ago.
150g strawberries, hulled and sliced; 1 banana, sliced; 125g thick yoghurt; 4 slices of dark rye bread; honey, for drizzling.
Kvass is a traditional Slavic and Baltic fermented grain beverage commonly made from rye bread. It is sometimes referred to as "bread drink", "bread cider" or even "Russian Cola". Originating in Eastern Europe and Russia, kvass is now becoming known and liked in many other countries as well. Kvass is very refreshing and can include delicious flavors from fruits and herbs. It typically has a tangy, earthy, salty flavor and can be an acquired taste, though many end up craving it due to the nutritional benefits it offers.
