The Russian Caravan came out again for me this morning because, as Joe knows, it is an awfully good taste when one is sick. Since I feel a bit under-the-weather, and Cole is more tired than usual, I think it's good to take a tea-precaution. ;)
Russian Caravan tea (see post made 1/11/08) is a solid middle blend of black teas, supposedly formed by Russian traders on their way back from the Indian Region in the early Medieval period. It turns a crimson color immediately, but does not necessarily require milk to enjoy fully. A bit of pepper comes through, which signals decent care in processing.
Instead of Peet's, the title-link this time will take you to a smaller dealer who offers this same blend. Enjoy! :)
