It is a traditional drink that appeared in Russia long before tea.

The first mention of sbiten is dated 1128.

The name reflects the process of making the drink - herbs and spices were 'blended' with honey and water. Traditionally this drink was served hot and could contain additives in the form of herbs, spices, berries and fruit.

Sbiten has special flavours and health benefits, thanks to the honey and herbs that make up its composition. Sbiten is versatile - try adding it to a salad or marinade and appreciate the taste of new dishes.

Sbiten was sold at market places and at folk festivals. It was as common as kvass or soda is nowadays.

The selection of herbs in sbiten varies from region to region. Most often cloves, cardamom, nutmeg, St. John's wort and sage, cinnamon and allspice are added to the sbiten.
