Historically, the Russian Caravan tea was the most important drink after vodka in Russia. During the time of the Czars, chests of tea would travel on camel back from China to Moscow. This is a medium strong tea that has a smoky aroma and a hint of malt flavor, perfect for heavier meals.
For this tea we suggest trying the Western-style of brewing. The idea behind it is to use much less leaf and much more water while brewing-times are much longer to extract as much of the flavor as possible at once.
The cool climate, and the winds which sweep across from the Indian Ocean give this tea a unique, refreshing flavour.
The taste is well-balanced, rich, strong and aromatically sweet.
The beverage is semi-dark, and the taste is medium-strong with a slightly malty aftertaste.
