Russian Caravan – 50g Postcard


A rich and intense malty black tea with a hint of smokiness reminiscent of the campfires along the long tea caravan journeys in days gone by. It is blended by us in London using tea grown naturally on small family farms in India and China.

The idea for this blend started when we tasted the very first Assam from Pallab Nath which had been mistakenly smoked during processing and thought how well it would work as a Russian Caravan tea. It’s tobacco/campfire smokiness blends well with the maltiness of the Beijing Breakfast and the Original Lapsang to recreate the unintentionally smoked Chinese teas that the Russians and Europeans fell in love with.

Brew with freshly boiled water and a teaspoon of tea per cup and take with or without milk.
