An amendment to my review of Mark T. Wendell'sRussian Caravan from last Wednesday. Today I brewed it with less tea and it is much better. It is still very slightly smokey, dark and very roasted tasting, but now there is more of a hint of sweetness and freshness about it. Goes to show- sometimes, you have to play with a tea until you get it the way you like it. This time I used about 2 teaspoons of tea in an 18 ounce pot, for 3 minutes and now I like it. I think I still prefer Upton'sFinest Russian Caravan, but having 2 to choose from is good.
