This tea should be called "Campfire Black." It takes like your are drinking smoke combined with black tea. Depending on the quality of black tea used in this blend, this tea is excellent. If the Assam, for instance, is not top quality, then it can suffer from too much smoke and not enough tannins. Much like a similar blend before it (smoky Russian caravan), this tea blends the campfire like lapsang souchong with other blacks. Aroma is 3/4 the fun with this tea. Nostalgic campers welcome.

This Russian Caravan is a good choice for people who want smokiness without the full intensity of a Lapsang. It's a good winter morning tea. However, its lack of subtlety caused me to tire of it, and I've taken a break from it for about a year. But it's worth coming back to.
