Russian Caravan is a blend of premium Chinese Black teas. The name originates from the 18th century camel caravans that facilitated the 11,000-mile transcontinental journey from Asia thru Russia to Europe. Along the route the tea aged and absorbed various aromas, one being smoke from the nightly campfires. Modern day Russian Caravan has pine smoked Lapsang Souchong rather than the traditional campfire smoke and camel sweat. We blend it with full leaf teas from the Fujian, Yunnan and Anhui provinces of China to complete this superior blend.
