RUSSIAN CARAVAN 50 TEA BAGS REFILL CARTON
A classic black tea with a bold smoky flavour. Our Russian Caravan 50 tea bags encase a distinct loose leaf similar to that of a black tea brewed over an open campfire. This is because eighteenth-century travelling traders would accidentally infuse their loose leaf wares with delicious smoke wafting in from the caravanserai fires they sat by. And so marked the beginning of Russian Caravan tea!
For some, it brings back the nostalgia of summer camps and going bush. For others, it is an exotic treat symbolising far-flung places! It’s a tea that can conjure old memories or make new ones. Either way, Russian Caravan is best enjoyed at either first dawn or a brisk starlit night. For those just entering the world of smoked teas, this brew is a great place to start. Some suggest that it’s milder in comparison to lapsang souchong, but stronger than Sir John, and an all-around, full-flavoured experience!
If you’re a fan of savoury teas in general, then we also suggest branching out and trying Hōjicha, a traditional roasted Japanese tea. You can earn more about some other traditional teas with long histories here.
