A smoky aroma and flavour thanks to a hint of Lapsang Souchong give makes this tea heady and mysterious. It is a tribute to caravans that would make epic journeys to China and return to Russia laden with tea.

Russian Caravan – very smoky aroma and flavor. This tea is not of Russian origin, but is a blend in the tradition of the 19th century Russian tea trade. Caravans spent upwards of 16 months making the round trip to eastern China and back, arriving in the Russian capital laden with chests of tea. “Adventures in Tea’s” Russian Caravan is blend of China’s Lapsang Souchong and Keemun Congou.
