The name comes from the Camel Caravans back in the 18th century, that transported tea across Asia, on the back of Camels, from the tea producing areas of India, Ceylon and China to Europe going through Russia, it would take 6 months and they would cross 9700km.
The smokey taste came from the camp fires that were made from dried Camel dung each time they stopped to rest and prepare food. The smoke over such a long time would give the tea the unique smokey notes.
Today no Camel dung is used and the smoky tastes comes from the Lapsang Souchong as the leaves are traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, creating a strong smokey flavour.
