Russian Caravan is a blend Chinese and Formosa Teas with added Darjeeling to bring it together. This creates a wonderful flavour with just a hint of smoke with bright liquor. This grade is mixed therefore infuses quickly bringing the blend of teas into a harmonious commination.
In the 18th Century vast camel trains brought tea to Russia from China, a journey of six thousand miles which took six months to complete. It is a fascinating tradition, which gave the tea its name. They would avoid the sea route to save the preservation of the tea as it thrived in the cold dry climate in Mongolia and Siberia. Traditionally the tea would take on the smoky flavour from the campfires however in modern times Lapsang is added to create the smoky flavour.
