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.
