Free RUSSIAN CARAVAN sample with $50+ purchase.
Like many tea blends with untold journeys that became their unspoken identity, this tea, transported to Europe from China through a northern route via Russia, was a treacherous and perilous expedition. Caravan leaders braved extreme cold, rugged mountain paths, encounters with wild bears, and the constant threat of bandits armed with knives and clubs, all with the precious cargo of tea at stake.
Our wonderfully flavorful tea blend pays homage to this storied heritage and the hardworking farmers who tirelessly cultivate these teas. Our special Russian Caravan blend features Lapsang Souchong, smoked with pine cone needles from Anhui, Oriental Red Robe (Oolong) from Fujian, our unique Keemun black from Anhui, and a touch of organic Assam for added body and boldness. The flavour profile is a delightful combination of soft, smoky notes with a deep, rich, slightly sweet, and malty body.
