Traditional Russian Caravan contains: a blend of oolong, keemun, and lapsang souchong teas. Since Adagio restricts what teas you can use for a blend, I was forced to improvise. At the time of its creation I have not tried this blend. As such it is experimental and subject to change. I used mambo black tea, assam melody and lapsang souchong to create this blend, also safflower has been added for accent and subtle taste. The previous blend smelled a bit too smoky but came close to taste with more of a chocolate, raisin flavor. It was good but not what I was going for. If the taste is not as desired in this iteration, I may add Ceylon Sonata but Assam Melody seems to be the way to go. Progression: RCXPT01 - Lapsang, Mambo, Almond Oolong : 50-30-20 * RCXPT02 - Lapsang, Mambo, Pu-erh Dante : 30-40-30 * RCXPT03 - Lapsang, Mambo : 20-80 * RCXPT04 - Lapsang, Mambo, Assam Melody : 10-80-10
