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!! Original Review Submitted" 10/30/08 (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Overall Character
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. Original Review Submitted: 8/27/08 (Posted on 10/25/2017)
Review by J PB
Overall Character
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.

Russian Caravan

Our take on the 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 pleasing cup of tea. Our blend contains no smoky aromas.

Brewing Tips: 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. Russian Caravan 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!

How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
