Description

Unscrew the cap. Take a whiff. Close your eyes. Gently breathe in. You'll get it -- a citrus bouquet, cinnamon and clove hanging out just underneath. The scents recall winter warmth and comfort, with a hint of freshness. This is the secret of Mad Alchemy's Russian Tea Warming Embrocation. It's strong, safe, and energizing.

For the master alchemist, this aroma takes him back to winter holidays with his mother-in-law. It's cold outside, but the house is warm. The Russian Tea is there for comfort. This is his go-to rub on race day. The scent helps him relax and focus on the task ahead.

This tub comes out whenever embro' is called for, which is pretty much all the time. Cool mornings, cold afternoons, road racing, cyclocross, you name it. A number is pinned on, then the Russian Tea Warming Embrocation is pulled from the gear bag.

In terms of heat, it's a medium rub with an equal percentage of capsicum annuum as the Medium packs. It doesn't pack a punch or a wallop; it's just right.

The ingredient list pretty much matches the Mad Alchemy Medium save for the line-up of essential oils. They're a bit different to provide a different scent for a different sensation. You'll find grapeseed and rapeseed oils with some shea butter and unbleached beeswax mixed in for the smooth texture. The warmth comes from the inclusion of capsicum annuum, and the aforementioned mix of essential oils gives it a scent that's comforting yet gets you ready for action.

The Mad Alchemy Russian Tea Warming Embrocation comes in a 4 oz (120ml) tub.

Medium?!?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great embro, does seem to take about 45 minutes to get going but man you can tell when it does! Super warm and I enjoy the scent.

Russian tea or Russian truckdriver scent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There is no doubt in my mind that this embro cream is made for cold weather. Cool? HAH! If you like your legs feeling like two pieces of bacon under a heat lamp. Great quality, but I thought I smelled more like a Russian truck driver than Russian tea.

Great for cooler weather

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I agree with the guys below (Not the guy that doesn't like it). This is a cooler weather embro. Good for low 40's to 30's. I've noticed that some people's skin reacts differently to this than others. For me, the MED blend is HOT! Give it a try, made in America!

Made right here outside of Denver, Colorado. Buy some from CC and then go to Mad Alchemy's website and buy yourself some more as gifts. Spread the heat and the love.

Russian Tea is great

  • Gender: Male

Great embro, I love Mad A products. This is a medium but a little goes a long way, so to speak. Do not over due it, or it will burn, but everyone's legs are different. I've noticed it took about 45 min to really kick in and get active. Perfect for fall/spring riding.

Big time cross racer and I use this stuff when the weather dips into the 30's. In the 40-50's I'll use a mild embro. Love Mad Alchemy products so grab a container of this stuff, you wont be disappointed.
