drank Russian Caravan by Lavender Basics
1527 tasting notes

The Lapsang Souchong mixed in gives it a hint of smokiness in its scent and taste but it’s not so overwhelming that the smoke is all you get. It tasted very smooth and it went very well with a bit of skim milk.

I tried it with boiling water this time instead of just steaming water and it brings out the ‘toasty’ notes in the tea’s description.

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!)
