RUSSIAN CARAVAN SMOKEY LEAF
£3.95 – £7.99
This is a classic tea with its history steeped in the mysteries of the Silk Road. Strapped to the camel’s back for its 6,000 mile journey from China to Russia, it acquired the flavour of smoke from the evening fires made for warmth while en route to Moscow.
Today it is a blend of smoky Chinese Lapsang Souchong and earthy Formosan Oolong teas, with Indian Darjeeling added to bring the blend together and to create the authentic ancient flavour.
The liquor is bright and smooth, excellent as an afternoon cup of tea.
Black tea. Produce of China, Taiwan and India.
