Russian Caravan 50 Traditional Teabags
Out of stock
Our famous Russian Caravan takes its name from the camel-drawn caravans which slowly travelled the ancient trade routes through Russia, taking this tea on an arduous journey from China to the tea tables of Europe. One of our oldest blends, this Chinese tea blend has a subtle sweetness, malty richness combined with a hint of smoke. It is an original take on an old time classic with a real sense of history.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
