Try our Russian Caravan tea that combines the fruity notes of Keemun, the smoky aroma of Lapsang Souchong and the tenderness of Oolong, all in one teacup!
Our Russian Caravan tea is a blend made from three Chinese black tea types – Keemun tea, Lapsang Souchong tea and roasted Loose Oolong tea. This tea pays homage to the camel caravans that delivered tea and other goods from China to Russia in the 19th century.
The journey was long, usually lasting several months, and the tea was subjected to campfire smoke. Therefore, the presence of Lapsang Souchong Tea and roasted Oolong tea in this blend brings to mind the sweet smell of a wood fire. This tea is delicious without milk and would be a beautiful choice for afternoon tea!
Black tea is a fully oxidised tea. Most of it comes from Kenya, as well as many Asian countries, including Sri Lanka (Ceylon), China and India. Some black tea types, such as Orange Pekoe tea, Pu Erh tea or Assam Loose Leaf Tea remain in their permanent state.
However, many other black teas are so-called Flavoured Black Tea types. they form a combination of different teas, or contain added elements. Such teas are Loose Leaf Earl Grey Tea, Russian Caravan Tea, Organic Loose Leaf English Breakfast Tea, etc. We offer you a vast collection of Loose Leaf Black Tea!
Our Russian Caravan Tea is full of character and refinement! What is more, it is called “Russian” because it contains some traditions of tea transportation between China and Russia. Therefore, in addition to its advantages connected with taste and health benefits, it also has a cultural value.
Another Flavoured Black tea with a “national identity” that we may recommend is English Rose Black Tea. This tea type is extremely important for the history of tea in Britain. Besides, it is one of our most aromatic tea types! Enjoy!
