Russian Caravan Tea
My current tea of choice is Russian Caravan Tea.
I think it is my current choice because of the smoky flavours of the Lapsang Souchong. However, Russian Caravan Tea is not really Russian but a blend of Oolong, Keemun, and Lapsang Souchong that was transported by camel caravans from China through Russia and to Europe. Apparently, the tea was a favourite of the Russian aristocracy, but that is not why I drink it.
I was never able to find it in Jakarta or more widely in Indonesia. However, no such dramas now that I am back in Australia.
As a matter of fact I am drinking a pot of it now.
