From Gaiwan Tea House

Aromatic and full-bodied tea with a sweet, malty and smoky taste. Anecdotal evidence had it that during the camel caravan journeys, the teas took on the smoky taste of the campfires. Perfect as breakfast tea and paired with salty and rich dishes.

I was really happy to finally be able to visit the Gaiwan Tea House in Coeur d’Alene. It’s a beautiful cozy place, and I got a delicious curry and an iced coconut tea latte there. I picked up some of their loose leaf samples to try at home, and this was one of them.

I’d never tried Russian Caravan before, but I heard it was like a light lapsang souchong. This actually tastes just as strong as lapsang souchong, but the flavor of the smoke seems different. It’s quite barbeque-smelling. It reminds me of mesquite smoke, though I know that’s not the wood traditionally used for this. The flavor is quite smooth. Quite a nice cup, overall, and not badly priced either: http://www.gaiwanteahouse.com/product/russian-caravan/
