Samovar Blend is a boldly smoky, polarizing tea that has devoted legions of fans and plenty of people who simply do not care for it. A traditional Russian blend, sometimes referred to as Russian Caravan, this tea blends a super smoky Lapsang Souchong with a rich, earthy Chinese Yunnan black tea. If you love cigars, smoked meats, scotch, or dark roast coffee, then read on: this tea is sure to count you as a fan. The blue-black leaves of Samovar Blend have an abundant, lightly sweet pine smoke aroma that permeates the entire room when a package of it is opened. Its dark ruby infusion carries similar aromas of pine smoke, with added notes of charred firewood, tobacco, leather and peat moss. The flavor is thickly, richly smoky, with some acidity, light astringency and pervasive woody sweetness. The aftertaste is one of smoke-cured meats. If you love intense smokiness, then you have found your ideal tea!
