Great to hear you love it :) Thanks David!

Smokey Russian Caravan Blend

Just had a cup of Russian Caravan tea. I haven't been able to find any for years and it is as lovely as I remember it. Before you taste it you can smell smokiness which makes me think of woodland. This is my first purchase from Teatotal and I will be back. Tea was in my rural mailbox within 48 hours, great service. Thank you.
