Taste: Russian Caravan (Loose Leaf) has a delicate smoky flavor. A classic staple that delivers a well-rounded black tea brew with a subtle smoky finish. This tea remains as a great introduction in comparison to its smoky counterparts, Keemun Congou and Lapsang Souchong Black. Out of these three, Russian Caravan ranks the least smoky.
