Taste


Russian Caravan tea provides a delicate flavour with slightly toasty notes, and a hint of Lapsang Souchong. This is a bright, light black tea with excellent flavour.


Facts


In Russia, during the Czar's time, tea was the most important drink after vodka and the traditional way of making tea was to allow a pot to simmer and steep all day. Evidence of this is seen in the Russian samovar which is considered to be the ideal means of making tea Russian style. Russian caravan tea is quite light and flavoursome in order to withstand a day in the pot. The history of Russian Caravan tea goes back hundreds of years, following the transportation of tea along the route of the Silk Road through central Asia. As the tea was transported, local villagers started cultivating tea along the route. This has developed the Lapsang Souchong influence in the blend we find today.
