Origin: Blended at Westholme
Ingredients: Assam, Ceylon, Keemun, Hojicha, Lapsang Souchong, Lavender
Description: This black and green tea blend was inspired by age-old tales of traveling tea merchants. Navigating their horse-drawn caravans from China through the cold climate of Russia, and finally into Europe, we created our own version of the famous Russian Caravan tea - the smell of the pine-smoked Lapsang Suochong in this blend reminiscent of cold nights camping on the road. The teas in this blend come from China, Japan, India and Sri Lanka - taste experiences and traditions from four of the biggest tea producers in the world. The result is a complex and aromatic cup, with a subtle lavender perfume woven through the pine steam of a fresh-poured cup.
Tasting Notes: The fine balance of tea from many regions and many traditional processes are woven together for this blend. The cup is at once robust in its savoury pine strength, while also gently sweet and understated. Complex crispness and notes of citrus linger on the palate after a pine-smoked welcome. A gentle lavender linger and slight malt finishes the smooth cup.
Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.
