From PureAromaTea

One of the most traditional tea blends. The old trading caravans brought tea from China to Europe by the overland route across south Russia – a journey of many months. This is a smooth, subtle blend, with a delicate hint of smokiness. Suitable for drinking all day.

To brew, place one generous tsp per person in a warmed pot or Mug Infuser and add fresh, boiling water. Allow to brew for 4 mins and strain into mugs or cups. Russian Caravan has a subtle flavour and is best drunk black, but this is not an absolute prohibition, many people prefer to take it with a little milk and sugar.

Finished the last of my sample today, which was sad. Especially as I’d ordered a Russian Caravan from the Kent & Sussex Tea Company (lots of Russian customers, figured it should be good), and found it very disappointing. I’ll order Pure Aromas again, maybe trying smoky and unsmoky, but just wanted to add that I enjoyed my last cup with the addition of a half teaspoon of honey. Not just any honey – Sarah’s Warming Honey with Cinnamon. (So, HTML doesn’t work. Okay then: http://www.mileeven.com/products.) It was an amazingly good addition, which didn’t make me feel I could only enjoy the tea that way, but added a fun other way to drink when in the mood.

(Backlog, I have one. Should be doing teas that have no tasting note yet, but what can you do when the mood to talk about a particular cuppa strikes?)
