I am russian.i know a lot about russian tea and traditions.Like for example having tea party using Samovar.We had tea with a slice of lemon,honey,sugar,pastry and etc.But believe me never we had tea with pineaple juice and orange juice.I dont believe Russia ever gron pineaples and oranges.They were imported to Russia,So this recipe cannt be called Russian Tea.You need to look on traditions and culture of country.Maybe tea could be called "tropical or whatever you can imagine)Just please dont call it Russian.
