Smoky Caravan Black Tea

From £6.00
Product code: 8014

Availability: In stock

A blend not dissimilar to our Russian Caravan but with the addition of some Tarry Lapsang Souchong. In truth, this recipe is closer to the original 'Russian Caravan' flavour which has changed over the years to suit the British palate. One can, however, imagine this tea brewing on top of a steaming Samovar and listening to Alexander Pushkin reciting his poems. The malty, chocolate notes of the two non-smoked components of the blend are complemented by the sweet, smoked pine fragrance.

The caravan refers to the 18th Century camel caravans that brought tea from India, Ceylon and China to Europe via Russia. It was a 6,000 mile, six-month journey! Needless to say, it’s a little easier nowadays!

Review by William Whawell
Without doubt the best tea I have tasted !! This is now my power tea to get through the day ( and while I love the Red White Blue ) this for me has to be the tea to drink. (Posted on 09/02/2013)
