This is a surprisingly tasty blend. I was hesitant to try it (alright, I was downright apprehensive) because, well, when I think “Russian Caravan” I think Lapsang Souchong, and when I think Lapsang Souchong, I think TOO SMOKY for me.

But this isn’t. Yes, there is a smoky taste to this tea, but it does not overpower the cup. It is not too much. The fruit flavor with the smoky qualities of the Russian Caravan create a very unusual yet delicious tea.

The fruity taste offers a bit of sweetness (which I’ve enhanced with a drizzle of honey) and somehow, it offers a strange yet complementary taste to the smoky flavor. I like this very much.

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
