Great hearty teaBy: Tabatha on 13 August 2020I first discovered "Russian Caravan Tea" about 20 years after trying it because of its interesting name and I've been drinking it ever since. This smoky version is a real 'pick-me-up' and is great in the morning and great on a cold day. It's a staple in my cupboard.
Russian CaravanBy: Richard on 20 May 2020A lighter style tea, smooth and pleasant smokey tones.
A very special tea break.By: John Jennings on 12 July 2019The shop is a delight, the tea excellent, and the service great. What more could you ask for! Smooth and quick online ordering when needed, of course.
Love the flavour!By: Cathy on 12 June 2019This is a gorgeous tea for those who enjoy tea with a smoky flavour but don't want their socks knocked off by it. You can definitely smell the smoky and the flavour is there, but the tea is not super strong which I prefer. I have been drinking Russian Caravan tea since I first purchased the Twinings brand loose tea in the early 80s. The tea from this shop is superior to Twinings in every way, and after tasting it in a cafe in Canberra a few years back, I have been buying 1 kg bags from them ever since. Highly recommended!
