Review by S. Lewis
Overall Character
I have been looking for a replacement for Twinings Russian Caravan tea since they stopped producing it. This is it! A lovely, very light smoky flavor and a perfect afternoon tea. Original Review Submitted: 5/29/12 (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Overall Character
Very interesting tea with a lovely smokey taste but still light and subtle. I really love it and the name is great. But the design of the label could be more Victorian and attractive. Thanks for making those great teas. Original Review Submitted: 4/30/10 (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Overall Character
A complex tea with a touch of smokey flavors. Not as smokey as Hu-Kwa, it defines a category of its own. I drink this leisurely, when I have time to savor the flavors. Original Review Submitted: 1/29/09 (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Victorian Afternoon

Created over 15 years ago and previously sold as a private label blend for the Elizabethan Club of Yale University, we are pleased to offer this original black tea blend to our customers as our Victorian Afternoon tea blend. This vibrant blend of Indian, Sri Lankan and Formosan teas is further complemented by a slightly smoky character. It yields a dark, reddish cup with a sparkling liquor when brewed.

Brewing Tips: Our Victorian Afternoon 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. Victorian Afternoon 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
