Another tea included in a recent thank you gift (yay!). As per some suggestions, I rinsed it briefly (pour lukewarm water in, swirl, dump) then steeped as I saw fit (2 tsp, 2 cups water just settled from a boil, 3 minutes). I poured it over honey whipped cream in a shallow bowl-mug.
I haven’t had a Russian Caravan tea in years. The last one I had was super strong and smoky and I found it really hard to drink. This one is nice and… well, not subtle, because campfire smoke would never be subtle, but very drinkable.
