Formosa Lapsang Souchong Black Loose Leaf Tea
Russian Caravan

Russian Caravan

A smokey blend of Chinese Lapsang Souchong, Keemum and Oolong loose leaf teas. The Russian Caravan will not disappoint if you are looking for a highly aromatic and full-bodied, smoky tea.

After fermentation the tea is dried over pinewood fires where it absorbs a unique smokiness.  This is one of the oldest methods of flavouring tea and was enjoyed by Victorian gentlemen. The smoking process was initially used to disguise substandard teas for importation however Lapsang Souchong is having a revival in popularity and achieving high prices. This tea is often taken as a digestive after lunch or dinner.
