From Teaberry's Fine Teas

A smokey China black tea of a blend of Assam, Fujian and Dimbula OP black teas. Delicate cup with toasty notes. Heady and mysterious, warming.

Woah, smells like bacon! This Russian Caravan is maybe a bit more smoked than what I generally like. Rather than using the usual Chinese black teas they seem to have gone with the more conventional (and cheaper?) Indian black teas. And you can tell as the tea has more bitterness and astringency than what I’m used to tasting in most Russian Caravan blends. Meh.

Is there a Russian Caravan you really like? I’ve been thinking about getting the one from Upton but am open to suggestions. :)

I’ve never really had a RC Blend, but if you wanted to try one from Upton, you could shoot them an email. They are really good at responding. I usually email Karen, but they are all helpful. I think the Finest Russian Caravan would probably be smoother. Or, is it the smokiness? I know you’re not fond of overly smokey teas.

I want one that isn’t too smoky. Might also give Mark T. Wendell’s a try
