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!

A Strong Kombucha

I bought this tea, and others, from Wendell for making my kombucha. This tea is very good for a strong kombucha; not a lightly fermented kombucha. I found a harsh after taste to my kombucha that most would most likely not like. But if you ferment for a week or more the after taste disappears and you still have a good sense of the body and briskness of the tea. Taste test your kombucha until you get past the after taste. Though my experience is limited with making kombucha I have confidence for those of you who like it deeply fermented you will not be disappointed. I also like the kombucha I make with half Russian Caravan and half Rooibus.

Tia Duer

This is my all-time favorite morning mug of tea. One tablespoon steeped for five minutes with 16 oz of fully boiled water makes a serious wake-me-up tea. For the last year, I've found It's also delicious with sweetener (I use two packets of splenda), cinnamon and soy milk. Yum. No need for a refill with this one! I really feel deprived when I don't have my Russian Caravan tea.

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!!
