Woah, smells like bacon! This Russian Caravan is maybe a bit more smoked than what I generally like. Rather than using the usual Chinese black teas they seem to have gone with the more conventional (and cheaper?) Indian black teas. And you can tell as the tea has more bitterness and astringency than what I’m used to tasting in most Russian Caravan blends. Meh.

Is there a Russian Caravan you really like? I’ve been thinking about getting the one from Upton but am open to suggestions. :)

I’ve never really had a RC Blend, but if you wanted to try one from Upton, you could shoot them an email. They are really good at responding. I usually email Karen, but they are all helpful. I think the Finest Russian Caravan would probably be smoother. Or, is it the smokiness? I know you’re not fond of overly smokey teas.

I want one that isn’t too smoky. Might also give Mark T. Wendell’s a try

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
