SMOKY CARAVAN BLACK TEA

As low as £8.00
A blend not dissimilar to our Russian Caravan but with the addition of some Tarry Lapsang Souchong. In truth, this recipe is closer to the original 'Russian Caravan' flavour which has changed over the years to suit the British palate. One can, however, imagine this tea brewing on top of a steaming Samovar and listening to Alexander Pushkin reciting his poems. The malty, chocolate notes of the two non-smoked components of the blend are complemented by the sweet, smoked pine fragrance.

The caravan refers to the 18th Century camel caravans that brought tea from India, Ceylon and China to Europe via Russia. It was a 6,000 mile, six-month journey! Needless to say, it’s a little easier nowadays!
