From Enjoying Tea

Russian Caravan is a blend of lapsang souchong with assam black tea. Lapsang souchong tea leaves are dried in bamboo baskets over pine fires. The Russian Caravan is a medium strong tea that has a smoky aroma and a hint of malt flavor. This tea is perfect for dinner parties.

Historically, the Russian Caravan tea was the most important drink after vodka in Russia. During the time of the Czars, chest of tea would travel on camel back from China to Moscow. This tea was famous for the smoky smell of the campfire it would absorb along the journey.

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.
