Russian Caravan Black tea is a resemblance of the “campfire scented” tea that traveled 6 months by camel-back from Northern China across the Gobi Desert to Russia, during the Tea Road Days. Of course this modern-day version is a blend of Keemun black tea and Lapsang Souchong.
If you like the smokiness of a pine fired tea, but like to back off the intensity of the Lapsang Souchong, this one is for you. It is a full-flavored black tea blend with a moderate smoky character and just a hint of citrus. It is a perfect fall and winter day tea.
