Russian Caravan Tea
The story of Russian Caravan Tea tells that on the long caravan journeys from the Far East to the North the teas would take on a dense, smoky taste of the campfire, which was, pleasantly enough, smooth and peculiarly enjoyable. Captured in this blend is the folksy charm of oriental tea from back in the day; smoky and sweet and just a little bit of everything that makes a good black tea great.
Pleasantly high-fired, reminiscent of a fireplace, and tints of fruit leather.
From the start, the cup imposes the palate with a robust quality, marked by strength and range of flavours. A bold note of high-fired tea dominates the cup, charcoal-like in experience, while an undercurrent of fruit leather cuts the anxiousness of the tea.
Best enjoyed with rich foods, such as pies and mac & cheese.
