It is most classic blend with name Russian Caravan. The highest quality teas were used to create this mixture – Indian Assam, Ceylon and Yunnan Black tea blended with smoked Chinese Lapsang. Russian Caravan blend have characteristic taste and is described as an aromatic and full-bodied tea with a sweet, malty taste. Presents of smoked Lapsang gave to the blend this desired smoky taste.

Our Russian Caravan mix consist of Assam and Yunnan black tea which gives to the tea sweet and malty taste, Ceylon black tea make it light and floral, smoked Lapsang tea give this characteristic, smoky layer to the blend. Brewed tea is coppery to dark amber when longer brewed, aroma is very attractive with toasty notes. Flavour is full bodied, balanced and pleasantly nice.

Russian Caravan Tea

This is lovely stuff. Very Smokey and deep flavour. Well worth the money.... which isn't much really, is it.

Pretty good, not try to damn with faint praise - I have bought a LOT of it!

This is a pretty decent Russian Caravan tea blend, and is in fact, so far, the best substitute for the long-lost formula for the Russian Caravan tea that Peets used to offer (then Mighty Leaf took it over afterwards). This is not as scrumptious as that one, and I have been experimenting with additional elements to try to approximate that remembered deliciousness. And I did have an opportunity to taste the two blends (Mighty Leaf & DGStoreUK) side by side.

So - what this one really needs is more Lapsang Souchong for that smoky nose, as well as some other medium-bodied note I haven't been able to identify yet (it is not assam or oolong. I am still waiting to try blending in keemun, or perhaps a golden tips from Nepal. TBD if those work). Nonetheless, I am buying my third batch of THIS tea from DGStoreUK, and will likely continue for some time. Until I can perfect my own blend! LOL. That may take a while....
