Regular price $118.00
DESCRIPTION
The tea originated in the ancient Sino-Russian trade route, established sometime in the late 1600s, over which large quantities of tea were exported from Imperial China to Tsarist Russia. Mile-long camel caravans loaded with tea traveled some 10,000 kilo meters via Siberia for 16 long months. The caravans that traveled along these cold, snow-covered roads, would stop for a rest around campfires. Parked next to the fire, the teas too acquired some of the woody smoke, turning ever so slightly smoky each day.  By the time this tea made it to Russia, it tasted quite smoky and rather strong. Fortunately, this suited the Russians; the strong, smoky tea resembled tobacco and firewood.
