Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge – June Theme: A June Wedding Tea #1
I might try finding a bunch of teas to fit this theme all month. I thought finding a tea old, new, borrowed, blue would be too easy if I was looking for a tea to fit only ONE of those categories! So my rule is that each tea must fit TWO of those options. This tea fits for OLD and BORROWED. It’s one of my oldest teas. I think it was part of the first ever teabox I participated in, and then when the teabox was done, there was some of this remaining, so I liked it so much the person who ended up with the teabox actually sent me the remainder of this tea and another one I liked! So it is “borrowed” on multiple levels. Flavors are fading now but it still has the most unique smoky flavor of any smoky tea I have ever had. Next time a sipdown.
Additional notes: This one is my favorite smokey tea. It’s getting on in years (but it’s rarrree..I can’t find it anymore), but it still tastes great… maybe not as nice as it once was. It may be because I don’t steep the leaves the entire time that I’m drinking the cup though. It just shows that I really should be drinking the teas that I have instead of adding more to the collection. I’ll work on that…maybe. I had the water all boiled for a second steep, but then I dropped the leaves on the floor! Noo!
This has such a distinct smoky scent. Russian Caravan teas really like to be the strongest smelling teas, but they taste good. I keep my Russian Caravan away from my other teas because it is so overpowering. They are pine smoked, so they smell like a really nice campfire. This one is great. It would make for a great fall or winter tea… for some reason I was drinking it while it was 80 degrees out. I think it would be interesting to have a Russian Caravan tea have a marshmallowy &/or graham crackery taste so it would be like S’mores around a campfire!
