This classic blend is strong and bold, with an intriguing complexity—just how we like our breakfast teas. Our Organic Russian Caravan’s sophistication stems from the careful composition of four high-quality organic large leaf teas—lapsang souchong, dark oolong, assam, & puerh—perfectly balanced to deliver a kiss of smoke and sweetness to your palate. This tea brings new life to an ancient tradition of flavor.
Historically, teas were brought to Russia from China via large caravans of camels. They transported massive cargos of Chinese loose leaf tea over 5000 miles from Peking to Moscow: smoky black teas, large leaf oolongs, and aged puerh were mixed and consumed along the arduous journey. They called it Camel Caravan Tea, but today it is known throughout the world as Russian Caravan.
