During the Czar's time, tea was the most important drink after vodka. In fact, even today the tradition continues as Russia and the CIS are major consumers of tea in world terms. Their tastes have changed over the years, but light, bright, flavory teas are still in high demand in Russia. Quite often the tea is thrown into a pot and allowed to simmer and steep all day; (evidence of this custom can be seen in the Russian samovar - the ideal means of serving tea Russian style). This is one reason you need a light liquoring tea with flavor to be considered for Russian Caravan Tea. The Lapsang Souchong in the blend gives it a hint of mystery.
