A blend of China teas, the name comes from the 17th century when camel caravans transported China tea to Europe. During the journey, the teas took on the smoky taste of the campfires. We launched it just after the First World War and it still captures a spirit of adventure.

I love the smokiness of this tea. It is lovely, full-bodied & a great way to kick-start the day & chase away Winter blues with thoughts of adventure and travel.
We have become totally addicted to the lovely smoky flavour of Russian caravan tea first thing in the morning, you can nearly hear the camel bells and feel the morning chill by a campfire! Yes an exaggeration but seriously, a very pleasing kick start to the morning.
Really looked forward to trying this so called strong traditional tea. Has to be the weakest tea I have ever tried! I say tried because it was so awful I had to throw the rest away. Might as well of drank a cup of hot water. Completely tasteless. What a massive let down!
Weak, insipid, tasteless. Hugely disappointing.
Have been a fan of Russian Caravan for many years. Latest batch is has smaller/more broken leaves than any I have bought before. It still tastes good, though it brews/stews more quickly. It is also very much more expensive. Whatever happened to discounts for bulk purchase?
