Tea will never be the same again

I recently bought some Smoky Russian tea online for the first time, after smelling it in Bird and Blend in Brighton and forgetting to go back and buy it and I am so glad I did. I have got so bored with my bog standard cups of green tea from generic supermarket brands and I can honestly say I am officially ruined for life. This is the most wonderful tea and it makes you realise it is worth that little extra money to get a proper, delicious cup of comfort. Smoky Russian is recommended to anyone who loves strong flavours, winter scenes and notes of pure nostalgia, relating to nights by crackling fires and late nights in the outdoors. I also got sent 2 sample flavours, one of which was Earl Grey Creme and I will never buy another brand of Earl Grey again. That will be my next purchase, for sure. Treat yourself to some Bird and Blend tea, you wont regret it....Read more

My favourite black tea

I am a huge green tea fan so was a bit sceptical when this tea was behind one of the doors of the advent calendar. At first I was unsure of the smoky smell but omg what a lovely tea! Enjoyed it so much I made sure to order more, definitely my favourite black tea!

Smokier than the average Russian

I first came across this tea in the 2018 Advent Calendar. My daughter bagsied it then raved about it, which is always gratifying - annoying but gratifying - so I bought her some more.

Its intensely smokey and really does capture a feeling out outdoors and campfires. The base tea is very smooth and flavoursome and compliments the smoking rather than distracting from it. There is no bitterness.

In our house "Russian Caravan" became "Ruskie Caravan", then "Rusty Caravan" and then simply "Rusty" - as in you would hear us say "Do you fancy a Rusty?" ; "Oh yes please". There is nothing rusty about this tea - its smooth and bright and energising. Easily the best of this type I've ever tried.

I love the smell of this tea

It literally smells like fire and tastes smoky and delicious. Keeping you warm in cold winter mornings.

My favourite

This tea is very different, and very yummy. Full bodied, smoky and satisfying.

My favourite - smoky, savoury and indulgent

This is AMAZING. It is unlike anything I’ve ever had before, but I can’t get enough of it. It is delicious, and confuses but delights the tastebuds - and leads to a chorus of “what can I smell?” across the office - in a good way!

Smokin'

Really delicious tea, I love the smoky flavour. I ordered tea bags because I'm lazy and I have a cupboard full of lose leaf, and they've been really convenient.

Yum

I bought Smokey Russian for myself when buying Christmas presents for others. I am converted from the previous brand I had!

The smell of this brewing is great... Hardest part is rationing myself.
