English breakfast is my regular order, for me Lapsong is OTT. Russian Caravan gives just the right mix of smokey
This is lovely stuff. Very Smokey and deep flavour. Well worth the money.... which isn't much really, is 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....
