Russian Caravan Tea

description

Taste is culture and no blend showcases this better than a Russian Caravan. The story goes that on the long camel-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.

From the start, the cup imposes the palate with a robust quality, marked by strength and range of flavors. 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.
