Russian Caravan (Loose Leaf) combines a malty Assam black tea, with robust Ceylon and mildly smoky Keemun black teas.


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.


       A majority of Davidson's organic black tea is sourced from family tea gardens in the Darjeeling and Assam regions of India. As organic tea growers, we're dedicated to protecting the natural environment and wildlife around us. This photo features a sign amongst the Banaspaty Tea Garden stating, "LEND A HAND TO SAVE TREES." This is where we exclusively source our Assam black tea.


Despite its name, Russian Caravan is not actually of Russian origin. In fact, the blend originated in China during the 18th century, when trade between the two countries opened up.

Sturdy, yet smooth and mellow

I love the touch of smokiness with the smooth, bold taste. Excellent for those who love breakfast teas but want something a little different.
my go-to black

I don't drink nearly as much black tea as I do green and white, but when I do, I like a robust variety with some depth and no bitterness. This is that. Holds up to milk and is the tea I use most frequently for making kombucha. If you want to break out of the English/Irish breakfast rut, give this one a go!
