Russian Caravan


A classic smoky, black blend. The flavor is smooth, pleasant and even tempered. Read the description below to learn more about this black tea and how it got its name.


Russian Caravan

Russian Caravan is a blend of smoky Chinese teas and Indian black tea. If you are familiar with Lapsang Souchong, then you know smoked tea can really knock your socks off, in a good way! This blend takes some smoked tea and throws in a few more full bodied blacks, creating a delicious black tea.

You might wonder how this tea got its name. Traditional tea trade between Mongolia and northern China is said to have used camel caravans. The camels could withstand long periods without water and carry immense loads. The tea carried in these journeys is said to have taken on the flavor of the campfire when they stopped for the night. While this might impart some flavor, the only truly smoked tea is Lapsang Souchong, which is one of the teas in this blend. While not every Russian Caravan blend uses the smoked tea, ours does.

If you’ve never had a smoked tea, give this famous blend a try. Luckily you don’t need to hop on a camel and travel thousands  of miles to experience this spectacular tea. Those who love smoked teas are loyal to the flavor. This black tea blend is a favorite amongst those who like strong blacks.

Caffeine. A made in Montana tea.

    This is a really good, robust black. I enjoy it with a drop of sugar and lemon juice. Very smooth.

    When I have time to brew and drink an entire pot of tea on the weekend…this is the one I love. Reminds me of a campfire. Great with crusty bread, an egg, ham and sharp cheddar!

What a wonderful shop! I've been in with my whole family a few times and it's just such a treat smelling teas, and learning new things. The lady behind the counter was extremely helpful for us newbies and she is so knowledgeable. During our last visit we tried the tea service and spent some time just enjoying cups of tea. The whole experience was a pleasure. 100% this is the best place to get tea in Missoula, and if you don't know anything about tea it's even better!

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories
