I always get my Russian Caravan from Teacakes fast service and what’s more the tea is second to none, just the right amount of smoky flavour.
Since finding this black tea, I’ve had to order in bulk and can’t be without it.
Not as smoky as lapsing douching but just right for me.
Beautiful flavour with a soft undertone of smokiness. Perfect if you find Lapsang a bit too smoky. I’ve had it most mornings for the last week - black with a quarter slice of lemon in - and it’s delicious.
Nicely balanced smokiness - this Russian Caravan makes a delectable cup of tea.
This has been our favourite tea and we've bought it from ToY for a few years now. Previously that was through Amazon but now buying directly - why pay more via a middleman?.
The tea is smashing. Lovely and rich with just a hint of smoke. Delivery was very fast and, as I said, myst cheaper purchased direct. Came with a wee sample tea too.
