Our Russian Caravan, is a blend of Chinese teas to produce a blend with a rich, smoky aroma. It’s medium-bodied cup has a generous smokiness, but does not mask the flavor. Aptly named “Russian Caravan,” this blend is reminiscent of the long tea caravans that traversed Asia centuries ago, scenting their cargo by their nightly campfires.

  • Anhui & Fujian Provinces, China, Taiwan
  • A distinctive flavor and aroma, sometimes referred to as tarry. Heady aroma of a pine wood fire and a hint of carmamel sweetness.
  • Medium-high

    This tea is great for when I’m in the mood for something different. I was struck mainly by it’s aroma–I wanted to try Lapsang Souchong, but I was a bit hesitant. This tea smelled brighter to me than the pure Lapsang. It’s quite smoky still, but you can smell the bright pine and it’s a bit reminiscent of Christmas. You can taste a bit of that aroma come through in the tea, in that it tastes woody. I’m not totally sold on Lapsang as something I will drink a lot, but as something different once every two weeks, this is a fun addition. Just keep in mind if you’ve never had Lapsang Souchongs, that this is a blend that contains it, and the smoke is very powerful–kind of like a well maintained wood burning fireplace.
