Discover more about Russian Caravan Tea
Was this the tea sipped by Anna Karenina? It's certainly possible! In 1618 the Chinese ambassador presented Tsar Alexis with a gift of several chests of tea and so began the Russian tea tradition. After the treaty of Nerchinsk in 1689 camel caravans started to transport tea from China to Russia. The journey was long and difficult and took up to 16 months, but the use of camel caravans is the origin of name Russian Caravan tea.
