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.

  • 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

I love this full-bodied black tea. It has a really unique smokey taste. For me, it reminds me of a summer camping trip up in the mountains sitting around a campfire and sipping a nice cup of flavorful tea.

Just as I remembered June 28, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Moore, SC United States  
Years ago I enjoyed a cup of a similar blend in a tea shop and it was the perfect antidote to an oncoming cold.  For years I searched.   My husband found yours while on a trip.  This was my second order online.  All batches tasted the same and were just great.  I don't know what will fight colds now that you are discontinuing it!
