Keemun and Lapsang black teas
This interesting tea is believed to have originated from 18th century camel caravans that transported teas along the Silk Road for the transcontinental tea trade from areas such as China and India to Europe through Russia. Ukranian Caravan is a traditional blend of lapsang souchong and keemun black teas. The deep flavor is full bodied and has a touch of sweet malty undertones. Although flavorful, it is smooth and mellow, so it is easy to enjoy Ukrainian Caravan tea any time. Add in the number of health benefits this tea offers, and you'll want to make this black tea from Capital Teas your everyday staple.

love the name change Glory to Ukraine, I bought 2 tins of this tea on a visit to your shop (thanks to my niece) years ago. Drank all of one tin and guess the 2nd tin got lost in the cupboard, found it recently and just finished it. Love the smokiness and will love it even more now.
We use this twice a year as the 'weak' base for our Tiki Party punch (One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak )
Not mild! Not boring! a nice change!
I love this full-bodied black tea. It has a really unique smokey taste. For me, it reminds me of a summer camping trip up in the mountains sitting around a campfire and sipping a nice cup of flavorful tea.
Years ago I enjoyed a cup of a similar blend in a tea shop and it was the perfect antidote to an oncoming cold. For years I searched. My husband found yours while on a trip. This was my second order online. All batches tasted the same and were just great. I don't know what will fight colds now that you are discontinuing it!
I like this one a lot.
Have only been able to find this tea with this quality at Capital teas.
