Overview of Russian Caravan

Our take on the famous centuries old tea blend that was so sought after in Russia that special caravans were commissioned to personally deliver it to the Czar. A beguiling blend of black teas that brews into a fine cup that is sure to please. Our special blend contains no smoky aromas.

Our Russian Caravan tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. English Breakfast tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

Love this tea. It's getting harder to find in teabags, though. (I need to use teabags at work). I'm so happy Mark T. Wendell Tea Co has them!!

This tea is easy to brew strong without getting bitter. I use it for making iced tea in the summer since it is strong enough to dilute well with the melting ice. It is also good, hot, on a cold winter morning, when you need a good pick-up.

A strong, robust tea with a very full body. Russians traditionally made exceptionally strong tea which was placed above the samovar in a small teapot. Hot water from the samovar was added with a small amount of concentrated tea into the teacup. This tea gets its inspiration from the strong teas of old Russia and makes a serious cup of tea.
