    Tasting Notes: Delicate and floral aroma. Full bodied with complex sweet malty flavors.

    Package Size:

    This international blend features fine teas from three different origins.  Our interpretation has slight natural smokiness from the Keemun combined with delicate, refined Darjeeling and semi fermented Oolong.  A great tea for those who do not add cream or sugar.

    Although originally a Chinese blend, its name originates from the 18th century camel caravans that facilitated the transcontinental tea trade from tea-producing areas (namely India, Ceylon and China) to Europe via Russia.
