From SpecialTeas

This Russian Caravan is truly a one-of-a-kind blend. The base teas are Assam and Keemun; the addition of Chinese Lychee tea to the blend gives a wonderful fruitiness, and small amounts of Lapsang offer a hint of smokiness. A great afternoon tea.

Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring boil; let steep for 3 min. Try with some rock sugar.

Ingredients: Black tea, China lychee

Health Benefits: Black tea is a powerful source of anti-oxidants that can slow down the aging process and help prevent a wide variety of diseases. Medical research suggests that black tea can assist in lowering cholesterol and regulating blood sugar. Much lower in caffeine than coffee, black tea gently stimulates the heart and circulatory system. By keeping blood vessels soft and lowering blood pressure, black tea can help prevent heart disease and strokes.

The scent is like the “lite” version of A&D’s Caravan misted over with Hawaiian Punch! There is this veil of red fruitiness covering the toasty, smokiness of the tea. Smells pretty yummy, actually. However, contrary to its scent, the taste is very soft and light with not much body—kind of wimpy! There’s this hint of salt and yeast with a sweet aftertaste. Seems better suited as an “afternoon” tea—way too mellow for breakfast! I’m glad I have a sample of this, but there has to be more “pizzaz” for me to buy more.

A promising tea which, sadly, falls short.
