Harney & Sons Russian Country tea is a blend of Assam, Ceylon, Formosa Oolong and a touch of Lapsang Souchong. It is a milder version of the characteristically smoky Lapsang Souchong. This blend is also reminiscent of teas that were once carried east by camel across the rugged Asian deserts to Russia.

Ingredients: Black tea, oolong tea 

Interesting fact: This is John Harney's take on a classic tea blend. The tea of China that was exported (a small portion) went by boat south- eastward from Canton to Europe. The other route was to follow the silk road to the north west to Russia. The teas that went through Russia were plain and they had to survive many months through searing deserts on the backs of camels and mules.
