Russian Caravan Tea Explained

Russian Caravan Tea is traditionally a black tea blend of Lapsang Souchong, Keemun and Oolong Teas.

This smoked tea tends to be sweeter, lighter and less malty than Lapsang Souchong.

It is believed that the name for Russian Caravan Tea came from trading routes that used a Caravan of Camels to transport tea from Chinese tea producing regions to Europe via Russia.

Discover Smokey Tea

Smokey tea originates from the Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province, China.

It is believed that Lapsang, which is blended with Russian Caravan, was the first smokey tea and black tea produced in China.

The first smoky tea was produced in Tongmu Village using the Camellia Sinensis Bohea tea bush variety at the beginning of the 19th Century.

Smoky teas are known for their unique flavour of smoky pine which is comparable to fine cigars and a single malt whiskey. 

For an alternative smoky black tea, there is also the Smoky Lapsang GFOP Organic or Lapsang Souchong
