Additional Information

  • Description
    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. One of our very first blends, it 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.

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

Origin: 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.

Black Tea

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.
