Product Description


Bright and flavourful, Russian Caravan takes its name from the camel trains that traveled from China to Russia, once used to transport fine teas to the courts of the Czar in Saint Petersburg.


It has been said that the blend was created to rekindle some of the flavours found in those teas, hints of campfire and bright starry nights. Unique blending of Lapsang, Darjeeling and China black tea creates a rich, aromatic brew with a smoky flavour.

Love itReview by Red Ruffensor
As with Souchong, this is one you either love or hate. I love it! Note: My mom used to enjoy mixing this with Earl Grey. She was a little quirky. (Posted on 2016-06-24)
Wonderfully exoticReview by Teajoe
I love this tea. It does have a strong taste and aroma, but it stands out for me from most other black teas which often taste quite similar. Great on a cold afternoon. (Posted on 2016-01-09)
Great!Review by Tea Granny
While it is an acquired taste as all teas are, those who experience it, especially if you have ever had tea brewed over an open fire, will love it! Men especially (not trying to sound sexist here guys but it's easier for us to admit loving a strong tea than a weak one) will love it although anyone who likes a good strong tea will appreciate it. Indispensable in the camp gear it is equally at home around the fireplace or just as an accompaniment to good music or a good book! (Posted on 2016-01-04)
beware-it must be an acquired tasteReview by Kristinee
Well, I hated this tea, my sister also didn't care for it either. It is very camp-fire smoky and would definitely would be an acquired taste. I was intrigued by the description and love strong tea but would not recommend this blend unless you are in the store and try it first. (Posted on 2014-07-23)
