drank Russian Caravan by Twinings
60 tasting notes

I was in the ED today and found a box of this in the breakroom. It swells smoky dry. I used water from the zip kettle so it was boiling and maybe even a little superheated. I brewed it for probably over 5 minutes while I was talking to Orthopaedics in Townsville. It has a pretty mild smoky flavour, just detectable. It is also on the sweet side without any additions. While it wasn’t the most interesting Russian Caravan, it is a nice changed from the bagged ceylon I have been drinking at work.

Bagged Ceylon? Oh, what has become of you in the Outback? Hurry back so you can have loose leaf again!

I know, it is sad. I will have to be re-educated about good tea. I don’t really have any personal space at work so I don’t bring my infuser or leaf. But I do have loose leaf in the mornings before I go to work so it’s not a complete tragedy. :)

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
