As I drink this cup of firewood, it is about 5 degrees outside with a negative wind chill. That may be weighing in on my opinion here but I have never had a tea quite like this (it is my first Russian Caravan, that being said)

Smells like smoke. In the good way that a tasty cheese might bring to your senses.

Tastes about the same. Actually, this is about the equivalent of smoking a cigar/ette in tea form (don’t think ashes, think nice rootsy tobacco)

There is a very subtle black tea undercurrent but the smoke is at the forefront. If you are trying to stay warm or just want a unique take on tea try this one.

Long term opinion – not a tea I would return to, but a nice diversion.

I like tea. The simplicity and complexity rolled together; this is a metaphor for how I would like to live.
