"Though it lacks the smokiness of other Russian Caravan teas I've tasted in the past, this is one deliciously complex cup of tea. Give it a try."

"Decidedly more complex flavor than the less expensive Russian Caravan sold here. Absolutely worth the extra money."

"Very disappointed with this blend. The dry leaf is very lightweight, rough and chunky with little aroma. Infused the tea is bland/insipid and lacking in any discernible flavour. I ended up pouring the brewed tea down the sink and made a fresh pot of Keemun Jade Pekoe which is delicious. Twinnings Russian Caravan is much better. I expect better from Upton"
