From Mighty Leaf Tea

Russian Caravan is a storied blend of Chinese black teas named for the path they took to reach Europe. This long journey through the cold, dry Siberian wilderness gave the tea a different flavor than tea carried through the tropics. This complex tea blend contains Lapsong Souchong and Assam teas which yield a bold, smoky flavor with a smooth finish—a tea that will be noticed and admired.

partial review from www.tastethetea.co.uk ;

Gosh where to start on this one! This has unexpectedly become one of my all time favourite blends due to its completely otherworldly characteristics, having the ability to send you travelling through space and time. When brewed for a couple of minutes the flavour is medium bodied, smokey yet smooth, bordering on sweet. The tastes and aromas of Russian Caravan are so suggestive that by merely closing one’s eyes the experience develops into anything your mind can imagine, As the description suggests this is a storied blend, seeping with adventure and inviting you to create your own. One minute you could be a sailor in the dusky Shanghai docks or in Victorian London, as a little urchin next to a crackling coal fire. The possibilities in this cup are endless stories for you to discover, making it a perfect companion brew for a good book.

Russian Caravan is suppose to have Oolong tea in it and this version does not…so it would be a much better tasting tea if it had the Oolong added. This version just has the lapsang and assam tea.
