Our tribute to a traditional Russian tea, named after one of our favourite authors. Caravans would transport tea on the long journey from Russia to China, and the smoke from the nightly campfires would infuse into the tea, giving it a distinct smokey flavor reminiscent of a mild Lapsang Souchong.

This tea is currently available only as a special order in the 16oz size. Please scroll down to learn more about special order teas.

Tasting Notes: Smokey, woody, Scotch, anise, mild astringency, subtle sweetness.

Drinking Recommendation: Hot with a touch of lemon.

Product Note: 1 ounce of loose-leaf tea typically yields 5 to 8 cups of tea.

We do offer local pickup at our flagship store, The London Tea Room. Click here to place a local pickup order.
