 SUBTLY SMOKY & RESTORING

Our take on this classic tea based on a blend of teas imported to Russia from China in the past which came via a network of trading routes known as the Silk Road. Originally the tea was transported by clippers (merchant sailing vessels) but due to it not being well suited to the damp environment, merchants started to transport tea on land by caravans of camels. During the stop offs the tea picked up the aroma of camp fires, giving it an intriguing smoky taste. In keeping with the original idea of this unique tea, our blend contains only Chinese teas and has a subtle nutty taste, with a tiny hint of smokiness of Lapsang Souchong. Typically drunk black, but enjoyable with milk too.
