Where it is grown

China

Traveling along the trade routes in Southern Russia and Northern China during the 1700s, gourmet tea became an extremely popular item. Chests of tea traveled by camel from China to Europe through Russia, the tea leaves picked up scents from campfires along the way. Eleven thousand miles and six months later, the tea had changed dramatically. This tea is named Russian Caravan because of its history of traveling from China through Russia to Europe. 

Flavor

The unique smoky flavor of this black tea is what made it Russia's second most popular beverage next to vodka. Enjoy the undertones of a blend that remains as a tradition among the finest Russian teas. We have delicately blended this high-grade black tea with hints of Lapsang Souchong, Formosa Oolong, and a China Blend to make this exceptional tea complete. Russian Caravan Tea has an assertive flavor and is for those who like a strong cup of tea.
