LOOSE LEAF RUSSIAN CARAVAN TEA
A classic black tea with a bold smoky flavour. Russian Caravan tea has a distinct flavour, similar to that of a billy tea brewed over an open campfire. Travelling traders accidentally infused their black tea wares with delicious smokey aromas as they had their campfire frivolities.
For some it brings back memories of billy tea brewed over an open fire, for others, it’s an exotic treat. It’s a tea that can conjure old memories, or make new ones, either way it is the ideal tea to drink on a brisk starlit night.
A great tea to start your smokey journey. Not as strong as Lapsang Souchong Tea, but stronger than Sir John, it’s definitely a flavour experience! If you’re a fan of smokey or savory teas in general, branch out and try Houjicha, a traditional roasted Japanese green tea. Learn more about some other traditional teas with stories to tell here!
