Russian Caravan


 
Alternative Views:




A tea with a rich history, Russian Caravan has both subtle and complex notes that have made it a tradition in Russian society and enjoyed immensely elsewhere. Chinese Keemun and pine-smoked Lapsang create an originally rich and aromatic flavor.

  • Lapsang black tea, as part of the black tea family, contains many antioxidants, which are important for preserving healthy cells. Antioxidants may also prevent certain types of cancer, as well as help lower cholesterol, and reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Keemun, the lighter tea that gives Russian Caravan its malty flavor, is also from the black tea family and contains antioxidants to benefit your health
  • Black tea also contains compounds (theophylline and caffeine) that help increase mental alertness and awareness, making it an energizing and mentally stimulating beverage
  • The compounds in black tea may also help with digestion and metabolism

Description
 
This interesting tea is believed to have originated from 18th century camel caravans that transported teas along the Silk Road for the transcontinental tea trade from areas such as China and India to Europe through Russia. Russian Caravan is a traditional blend of lapsang souchong and keemun black teas. The deep flavor is full bodied and has a touch of sweet malty undertones. Although flavorful, it is smooth and mellow, so it is easy to enjoy Russian Caravan tea any time. Add in the number of health benefits this tea offers, and you’ll want to make this black tea from Capital Teas your everyday staple.

Woodfire scent. Need one of these smokey teas December 18, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa Claflin from Mesa, AZ United States  
I like the smokey teas because they have the scent of woodfire and that's always kind of fabulous and ancient. In a small glass Russian tea glass it is quite special. In a mug with milk also special. I'll be keeping this on hand.

Great tea & customer service December 17, 2015
Reviewer: Christopher Jones from Berkeley, CA United States  
Great tea and nicely balanced.  Tea aroma and flavor nicely smoky.  Many Caravan teas I've tried have a great smoky smell but don't deliver on taste.  This one does both well.  This is a great cold weather tea.  Thanks Capital Tea!
