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 smoky aromas as they had their campfire frivolities. This was in the eighteenth century, and marked the beginning of Russian Caravan loose leaf!
For some, it brings back memories of billy tea brewed over an open fire. For others, it is 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 smoky journey. 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 smoky or savoury teas in general, we suggest branching out and trying Houjicha, a traditional roasted Japanese green tea.
