  • Full Description

    Our famous Russian Caravan takes its name from the camel-drawn caravans which travelled the ancient trade routes through Russia, taking this tea from China to the tea tables of Europe.

    This loose leaf blend brings together the rich, malty taste of Assam with the authentic campfire smokiness of Lapsang Souchong from Fujian. We've added high-grown Nepalese tea to balance the smoke-tinged taste with light, bright top notes – all in all, the result is a multi-layered brew with rich, layered tones of spice, sweetness, malt and smoke. It's an old-time classic with a real sense of history.

NUMEROLOGY

We've chosen the number 40 for this tea, the speed in km that a camel can maintain for up to an hour. Those caravans must have been quite a sight

BLENDED

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
