Inspired by the 18th Century camel caravans transporting tea from China to Russia. During the long journey they would stop at night and huddle around the camp fire. As a result, the tea started to gain a smoky flavour from the fires and became known as Russian Caravan Tea.
Our Lincolnshire Tea Caravan Blend is a blend of our larger leaf loose leaf Lincolnshire Tea blend, a smoked China tea and a generous dash of orange peel. One of our favourite summer drinks is a cup of Lincolnshire Tea served hot with a slice of fresh orange; this gave us the idea of adding orange to the Lincolnshire Tea Caravan Blend. It doesn’t give the tea a strong orange flavour but adds a citrus freshness and balance to the cup. A tea to be enjoyed with family and friends or enjoyed outside on sunny days.
A tea to be enjoyed with family and friends outside on sunny days or winter months around the fire. One of Susie’s favourites, this is a truly fine tea with a subtle smokiness which compliments the flavours of BBQ and smoked foods.
