Russian Caravan is a classic Chinese tea blend names for the famous goods caravan that traversed the plateaus of Mongolia into Russian to bring tea to the Russian Imperial court. Not only was the smokiness of this blend favoured in Russia; the smoking process also served to help preserve the tea leaves for the long journey across Asia and the various climates that would be encountered along the way.
Our version of Russian Caravan has the classic Tea Palace twist of taking the finest quality, whole black Lapsang Souchong leaves and blending them with spicy Chinese Yunnan for a blend of outstanding quality and full-bodied, balanced smoky flavour.
Russian Caravan is also included in the following signature gift collections:World of Tea Collection - £39.95
