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.

Brew a Perfect Cup
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teabag per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
My husband always drinks Assam, but a gift of Whittards different teas from our daughter changed his mind, he loves this Russian caravan tea, looks like I will be ordering a whole lot more of it.
Excellent strong flavour! perfect if u love strange taste!
When I first discovered this tea, about 5 years ago, I just couldn't get enough of it. It's still my favourite tea - nothing else comes close! Full, rich-flavoured, without that stewed taste you have when you try to get the same flavour out of another tea. Just fantastic.
There's a reason why this is always sold out. If you like your tea strong and flavorsome, then this is the tea for you!
The new bags in the blue packets do seem to have slightly less per bag though.
