Russian Caravan is a blend of strong black teas with a distinctly smokey characteristic. According to legend, the smokiness was imparted in the tea as it was unloaded nightly next to campfires during the long journey from China to Russia. This strong tea can be an acquired taste, but for some tea lovers it’s the essence of all things wintery and cozy: woodsmoke, black tea, and a crackling fire.
Centuries ago, this blend of black tea was so sought after in Russia that special caravans were commissioned to personally deliver it to the Czar. Aptly named, this tea is a one of a kind blend that will soon become one of your favorites as well. This tea is best served hot.
