A mellow Lapsang Souchong

I love Lapsang Souchong, with its smoky, peaty, pine forest intensity, but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming. Especially at work, where everyone always accuses me of drinking whisky. I also love Russian Caravan tea, with its malty, mellow, hug-in-a-mug deliciousness, but sometimes it's just a bit too plain nice, like a rich tea biscuit when you want a gingersnap, or victoria sponge when you want carrot cake. Here's Smoky Russian to cater to those in between times, with just enough smoky intensity around a malty hug-in-a-mug....Read more


Just one whiff

I fell in love with Smoky Russian after just one whiff in the Borough Bird & Blend shop. Straight up smoky, not trying to be anything else. I had sniffed and bought many different teas in the shop but Smoky Russian and also Mango Tulsi came out as clear winners for me so I’ve bought the tins. Very handsome they look in my kitchen too.


Packed with smoky flavour!

This is one of my absolute favourites (in a long list)! It has a scent that reminds me of autumnal afternoons and bonfires which has more than once caused my colleagues at work to wonder where the fire is! Fantastic taste too, if you love smoky things, you'll love it as much as I do.


Grandma, is that you?

Unfortunately, this wasn't my cup of tea. The smell and taste is what I imagine compares to putting grandma's ashes in a teabag with the dregs from her ash tray. I received this as a free sample, just because it's not to my taste I can see why people would enjoy it.



Love this tea. The smokiness almost remains me of a peaty scotch. Its my our new favorite.


Perfect Winter Warmer

I love this tea! It smells of a smoking bonfire or a peated whiskey, but the taste itself is lovely and mellow, would recommend for a cold day, or whenever you want comfort in a mug :)


A liquid hug

This is rapidly moving up my top five favourites list. A smoky liquid hug, bonfire in a cup, call it what you will. This tea is always my winter weekend morning staple, for when I want a rich and comforting cuppa.


Does what it says in the tin .... well packet as i only ordered 50g

fabulously smoky, richly Russian & definitely no tinpot caravan

One of the best smoky Russian Caravan teas I've had I n a long while, great for bonfire night or in my case a Winter Scout Camp, sat around the fire with a blanket to keep my back warm, a fire for my front & a good strong cup of tea for the insides … perfect. & when you're back home without the kids add a drop of Isley Malt for a more warming brew...Read more


Not as expected

As someone who is Russian I have mixed feelings about this, the taste is identical but the smell is so overbearing it doesn’t make it enjoyable to drink


My go to favourite

I have always loved this smoky tea but Bird and Blend’s version is incomparable to previous ones I’ve had. Needless to say that I will not be reverting back to my old version and will be firmly sticking with Bird and Blend. Thank you.


whisk me off to the camp

what a powerful blast of a tea. This smells like the best campfires and conjures up campfire stories and being in the great outdoors . Tastes amazing a definite favourite


Unusual, but pleasant taste evokes memories of campfires

Please never stop making this tea! It is fabulous with or without milk/sugar. Perfect for all-day drinking! The smokey note is warming & soft. Takes me back to campfires on the beach in late spring.


A new fan

I thought I didn't like lapsang, then I had some of this in the advent calendar and some other one at my pa's and I actually liked both. So I thought I'd get some of this!
Apparently I like smokey now so that's good!


Interesting taste

The smoky taste is Very strong! It's almost like eating bacon^^ Not my thing but i'm glad i tried it :)


An absolute delight of a tea!

This has to be my favourite tea, I can't recommended this enough. Great Evening tea with smoky flavours enjoyed with or without milk.


Deliciously Smokey Yet Mellow

I bought this as a random purchase (I usually buy chai flavour teas) and I think it’s my new favourite. The smell is smokey and exotic, and flavour is what I’d call a proper tea taste. I drink it black, it works really well like that, and not too strong


My Favourite!

B&B are one of the few that offer this original blend of Russian Caravan tea. And it's a great one :)


Packs a real punch

I liked the taste of this tea, good for mornings to wake you up, really smokey taste.



Tried this as I was sent a sample and so good that this is my first order of it



A lovely smoky smell and taste. Just right after a lazy lunch.
