About Russian Caravan
Luxurious Russian Travel
from The Tea Set
Lapsang souchong imparts a smoky aroma to the tea, and the resulting blend is usually quite smoky. Typically the other teas used in the blend have a stronger quality than the Lapsang souchong, which tends to be a mellow, smooth tea with a low caffeine content. The resulting blends typically are more caffeinated, more bitter, and less smoky than Lapsang souchong on its own.
Because both Lapsang souchong and the other black teas used to create the Russian caravan blend come in many different grades and qualities, Russian caravan itself comes in many different grades and has widely variable quality.
